Harold and Margaret Sprout Award – Nominations sought

ESS members who know of books, or have published books of their own, that they wish to see nominated for the Harold and Margaret Sprout Award are encouraged to contact publishers as soon as possible.

The award is sponsored by the Environmental Studies Section, and is given to the best book in the field, one that makes a contribution to theory and interdisciplinarity, shows rigor and coherence in research and writing, and offers accessibility and practical relevance. Nominated books should address some aspect of one or more environmental, pollution or resource issues from a broadly international or transnational perspective, including works in (for example) global, interstate, transboundary, North-South, foreign policy, comparative or area studies. Environmental subjects of books can include (for example) environmental law, diplomacy, transnational activism, natural resource use, global change, sustainable development, biodiversity, transboundary pollution control, and the like.

ESS Business Meeting Minutes, Feb. 16, 2009

  • Meeting brought to order by Beth DeSombre

    Elections:

    • Nominees for ESS offices were introduced (distressingly few were present)
    • Nominations from the floor were invited. None were made.
    • Ballots were distributed. Much hubbub ensued, eventually brought to order by Beth.

    ESS Reports:

    • There are currently 310 section members. They contribute $5 each to the ESS budget.
    • ESS costs – the annual reception, and the two prizes.
    • The section needs to recharter by 2011.
  • New Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS)

    I am a member of the Coordinating Committee for the newly-created
    Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) which was
    formally launched in mid-2008. The AESS grew from discussions began
    three years ago at the First “Environmental Summit” held at the
    University of California, Santa Barbara, under the leadership of William
    Freudenburg.

    These initial discussions were continued at two subsequent
    national meetings of persons sharing a professional interest in
    interdisciplinary environmental studies. We have recently published our
    second newsletter and I invite you to view that, and our website, at:
