Inaugural Conference in the Environmental Philosophy Series

From July 16th to 18th, Philosophy in the Wild hosted the inaugural conference of its Environmental Philosophy series!

 

Participants camped, weathered a thunderstorm, and did environmental philosophy at Poe Paddy State Park in Central Pennsylvania during the outdoor, technology-free event.

The list of speakers and presentations is here.

A special thank you is due to our keynote speakers, Brendan Cline (CSU Channel Islands) and Karen Kovaka (Virginia Tech). A special thank you is also due to all who helped in countless ways, including sharing water bottles when the campground pump went out and sharing gear.

2021's event was funded by the Greater Philadelphia Philosophy Consortium.
