CfP for Special Issue on Aldo Leopold

by Qi Feng Lin

Dear colleagues,

2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac.  A collection of Leopold’s personal reflections on the land and land ethics, the book gained popularity during the environmental movement of the 1960s and has remained a cornerstone of environmental literature ever since.

To commemorate the anniversary, Socio-Ecological Practice Research will be publishing a special issue to reexamine, reassess, and reenvision the legacy, influence, and relevance of Leopold and his landmark book.  We welcome articles from writers and scholars in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and the arts.  The special issue will be guest edited by Dr. Qi Feng Lin and advised by an editorial committee chaired by Dr. Curt Meine.

Prospective contributors are requested to submit an abstract at by January 14.  For more details, please refer to the attached CfP, which is also available at the SEPR homepage:

Please direct all queries to Qi Feng Lin at If you are interested in submitting an abstract but have concerns about meeting the deadline, please contact him.

We look forward to receiving and reading your abstracts.
