The University of Kentucky Political Ecology Working Group invites you to participate in the seventh annual Dimensions of Political Ecology Conference (DOPE) February 23-25, 2017. DOPE has become a key international forum for graduate students and faculty at all stages in their careers, fostering critical interdisciplinary discussion of urgent topics including: rural social movements; food systems; complexity in ecological and social systems; decolonization, knowledge, and difference; science and technology studies; neoliberal natures and climate justice; and feminist political ecologies, among many more. Over 300 scholars, activists, and environmental professionals attended DOPE 2016, representing dozens of disciplines and more than 100 institutions spread over four continents. Plenary speakers will be present in Kincaid Auditorium in the Gatton College of Business and conference presentations are scheduled in newly renovated Patterson Hall (North Campus).
