Due to restrictions on travel and public gatherings at this time, this Environmental Ethics Symposium has been postponed. We plan to host this event during the Fall 2020 semester.  We will post new information when it becomes available.


Original Announcement:

The philosophy department at Colorado State University has an extraordinary legacy in environmental scholarship including foundational work in environmental ethics. As part of CSU’s sesquicentennial celebration, and in conjunction with Earth Day 2020, the philosophy department continues this legacy by hosting the upcoming conference, The Future of Environmental Ethics: Exploring New Directions and Rethinking Where We’ve Been, to be held April 14-17, 2020.

The conference will feature four scholars at the cutting edge of environmental philosophy:

Chris Cuomo, Professor of Philosophy and Women’s Studies at the University of Georgia

Clare Palmer, Professor of Philosophy at the Texas A&M University

Christopher Preston, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Montana

Kyle Whyte, Professor of Philosophy and Community Sustainability, and the Timnick Chair in Humanities at Michigan State University

Together these luminaries will showcase exciting new directions in environmental philosophy, while acknowledging the history of the field. Join us at CSU in April of 2020 as we celebrate the past and explore the future of environmental philosophy.
