7th International Symposium on Environmental Sociology in East Asia (ISESEA)
- Theme: Social Actions to Climate Change and Energy Transition in East Asia: Toward a Sustainable Planet
- Dates: October 26(Sat) ~ 28(Mon), 2019
- Venue: Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea
Co-hosting with RC 24 of International Sociological Association, the Korean Association for Environmental Sociology (KAES) will host the 7th ISESEA with the theme of “Social Actions to Climate Change and Energy Transition in East Asia: Toward a Sustainable Planet” at Seoul National University during October 26th~28th, 2019.
The transition to a sustainable society has become a significant challenge that East Asian countries can no longer ignore. Fortunately, there is an increasing number of social actions in East Asia that seek sustainability transition. However, contentious politics for sustainable societies in East Asia is still in its infancy. Growth coalition, which claims the inevitability of nuclear power, still has a strong influence, and developmental policies to destroy the natural environment are also continuing. Furthermore, the historical experience shared by East Asian countries, including export-led economic growth, the legacy of authoritarian politics, and strong aspirations for economic growth, further complicates the politics of transition between state, market and civil society. From a comparative historical point of view, the experience of East Asian countries will provide various implications for developing emerging debates, such as climate justice, energy democracy, and degrowth, as well as major topics of environmental sociology, and seeking “just transition”. We hope the 7th ISESEA vitalizes discussion on social actions to climate change and energy transition, rethinking its challenges and implications toward a sustainable planet.
While all topics on environmental sociology are welcomed at the conference, we especially invite papers that address one or more of the following topics:
- Climate actions and energy transition
- Transboundary pollution, risk politics, and environmental governance
- Environmental movements, green politics, and state
- Environmental justice, ecological democracy and ecological citizenship
- Sustainable development and degrowth
We particularly encourage proposals of organized sessions with 3-4 papers addressing the same topic.
For individual papers, we will arrange them in the session of similar topics.
• Deadline for abstract submission: March 31st, 2019
• Announcement of Abstract Acceptance: April 30th, 2019
If you are interested in participating in this conference, please send an abstract, no more than 500 words, to ISESEA-7 homepage by March 31st, 2019.
