4th annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop in Environmental Politics & Governance
4th annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop in Environmental Politics & Governance
WhenWednesday, May 16 – Friday, May 18, 2018

On May 16-18, 2018, University of Washington’s Center for Environmental
Politics will organize the 4th annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop for
doctoral students working in the area of environmental politics and governance (EPG). This follows on the highly successful workshop that the Center hosted in 2015, 2016, and 2017. The EPG Grad workshop provides a venue for doctoral students to present their work, receive feedback, and network with others working on similar issues. We will invite select faculty from the University of Washington to serve as resource persons.

Why the workshop? Understanding the governance and political aspects of
environmental issues is critical for addressing the gamut of environmental
challenges. The politics of governance perhaps has become an even more critical factor in the changed political milieu. The multi-disciplinary nature of EPG research often makes it hard to share ideas, concepts, and research methods across relevant disciplines. We hope the annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop will help overcome these barriers and provide a multi-disciplinary venue for doctoral students to become active participants in the community of EPG scholars.

This workshop will be most useful for doctoral students who have made
substantial progress in their graduate studies: that is, they are able to
present a fully developed paper or their dissertation prospectus. The students need to submit:

- an abstract (about 800 – 1,000 words) of a paper or dissertation prospectus to be emailed to <>.
- a letter of support from their graduate advisor to be emailed to
The deadline for submission is February 15, 2018.

There are no workshop fees and the Center will pay for local expenses, namely each participant’s food and shared hotel lodging (with two participants per room) for three nights, May 16, 17, and 18. Participants are responsible for travel expenses.

The Center for Environmental Politics is excited to organize this unique event focused on furthering graduate training and education. Should you have any questions, feel free to email Aseem Prakash;
