3rd annual Duck Family Graduate Workshop
University of Washington, Seattle
May 17-19, 2017


On May 17-19, 2017, University of Washington’s Center for Environmental
Politics will organize the 3rd 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 and 2016
(http://depts.washington.edu/envirpol/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/Brochure_FINAL.pdf).

The EPG Grad workshop provide 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 University of Washington and other universities
to serve as resource persons.

Objective:
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.

Expenses:
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 17, 18, and 19.

Participants are responsible for travel expenses.

Application Logistics:
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;
- a letter of support from their graduate advisor. Applicants should upload the
above material using the form available here:
http://depts.washington.edu/envirpol/?page_id=1229

The deadline for submission is February 15, 2017.
