XXIst International Conference of the Society for Human Ecology (SHE)


Shaping a Livable Future: Research – Education – Policy

Santa Ana, California

April 12 – 15, 2016

This conference is meant to be as broadly interdisciplinary as possible – bridging science, social science and policy perspectives – with literature, humanities and creative arts.  Like previous SHE meetings, it is intended to bring together a diverse group of educators, researchers and practitioners who utilize, or are interested in, interdisciplinary and ecological approaches. We look forward to a diverse and exciting program with an excellent range of speakers, symposia, round-tables and individual presentations.

Keynote speakers include:

Hunter Lovins, President, Natural Capitalism Solutions
Towards a New Regenerative Economy

Michael V. McGinnis, Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterrey
Re-Inhabitation: Watershed-based Activism in Alta California

Christopher Chase-Dunn, University of California Riverside
Climate Justice in the World Revolution of 20xx

Ag Kawamura, Former California Secretary of Agriculture, and co-chair of Solutions From the Land
Commercially Viable Urban Farming in Southern California

Who Rules the Earth?

Lori Peek, Colorado State University
