IAS faculty member Jason Lambacher presented an environmental political theory paper titled, "Wilderness, Wildness, and Cross-cultural Dialogue," at the Just Sustainability -- Hope for the Commons conference, hosted by Seattle University's Center for Environmental Justice & Sustainability on August 7-9.  Lambacher's paper examines social justice critiques of global conservation practices and looks at possible responses centering on the concept of wildness. IAS faculty member Rob Turner also presented a paper at the conference (along with Tom Koonz) titled "Pedagogy for Change:  Effects of Sustainability Engagement on Student Attitudes, Values, and Beliefs," which reflects research involving UW Bothell students and classes.
