October 21-22, 2021

The Center for EcoJustice at the Iliff School of Theology is soliciting papers for its second conference titled Shifting Climates, Shifting People to be virtually held on October 21 and 22.

The conference will be examining the intersection of environmental racism and immigration. Papers accepted will be presented during the conference and incorporated in a future publication. A token honorarium of $500 will be provided as a modest stipend to show our appreciation.

Paper presentations during the conference will be limited to 20-minutes long, and the written version for future publication is expected to be 6,000 to 7,000 words (the book based on presentations of the first 2019 conference will be released 3/31).

If interested, please send a 500-to-750-word abstract by April 1 to

Notification of paper acceptance will occur by April 15


“The greatest threat to humanity is the continuous degradation of the global environment; and those at the forefront are disproportionately communities of color. Hence, our focus, since the beginning, has been environmental racism.”
