The Center for Environmental Arts and Humanities is
calling for papers and creative submissions for the North American
Interdisciplinary Conference on Environment and Community, set for
Feb. 19-21 at the University of Nevada, Reno. Those whose work is
selected will get the chance to join artists, scientists, ranchers
and outdoor enthusiasts in workshops and panels. Speakers include
naturalist and writer Barry Lopez and anthropologist Keith Basso.
Scott Slovic, the center's director, hopes the gathering will give
people who don't usually have a public forum a place to present
their ideas. For example, he says, Native American farmers will be
on hand to discuss sustainable farming.
