EADI eNewsletter #2/2 2023 | Registration open, Green Academia & More

2nd Issue February 2023
This week we are more than happy to announce that registration for our 2023 Lisbon conference is open, and we would like to encourage you to register as early as possible. Today’s blog is about ideas and approaches for a greener and more ecocentric academia, which is related to our virtual « Green Academia » book launch event on 28 February. Another event highlight is our virtual dialogue with Joyeeta Gupta on 07 March, which we very much look forward to, so save the date! In line with our support for more regional get-togethers of our members, we have teamed up with some French members for the doctoral days « Regards critiques sur le développement » in Paris later in the year, for which the call for papers is now open. More on this and other picks and highlights further below.
From our Blog: Ecocentric Pedagogies
Ecocentric pedagogies and green scholarships: Towards green academia »Ecocentric knowledge practices invite us to think about the necessity of interweaving the technological paradigms of teaching and learning with their indigenous counterparts in a de-hierarchical manner, especially in the context of Covid-19″, writes Sayan Dey in our latest blog. He draws on examples from Kenya, India, New Zealand and Bhutan, where « one of the purposes to introduce a green education system was to counter the mainstream modern/colonial knowledge systems that are anti-ecological, self-profiting and capitalistic in nature, and to build knowledge systems that are centered on the existential and functional values of the natural environment ». Read the post  and Register for the online book launch with Sayan Dey on 28 February

Financing the SDGs: Special Issue Launch, 21 February
Next Tuesday, 21 February 2023 at 10.00 CET,
the editors of the special issue of our journal, the European Journal of Development Research (EJDR) invite you to an online launch panel of the issue. In addition to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the current Ukraine war has led to severe supply chain disruptions leading to a sharp increase in food and commodity prices globally. The challenge for developing countries now is to mobilise adequate resources both from domestic and international sources, not just for the achievement of SDGs as such, but also to sustain the livelihoods, health, and welfare of people. Register here 
07 March: Virtual Dialogue with Joyeeta Gupta
The Sustainable Development Goals aim to improve access to resources and services, reduce environmental degradation, eradicate poverty and reduce inequality. However, the magnitude of the environmental burden that would arise from meeting the needs of the poorest is under debate—especially when compared to much larger burdens from the rich. Don’t miss to listen to and discuss with Joyeeta Gupta on 07 March 2023 at 15.00 CET, who will outline why achieving these goals calls for a radical redistribution of resources. Read more and register
Call for Papers: « Regards critiques sur le développement » 
The doctoral days « Regards critiques sur le développement » will be held from 18 to 20 October 2023 in French language in Aubervilliers/Paris, France. They aim to promote synergies between young scholars in social sciences who contribute to critical research on development, both in the Global North and South. This year’s thematic focus is around the notion of « resilience », on the premise that different ways of understanding and/or criticizing « resilience » allow us to nourish a trans-disciplinary, critical debate on development. The call with funding opportunities with priority for colleagues from the South is open until
01 April. Read more
Highlight: Contours of Feminist Political Ecology
This open access book sets out how feminist theory and practice shape political ecology debates. The book uses innovative methodologies which emerged from the WEGO international network’s global activities in the last four years. Each chapter highlights conversations with local communities, social movements, and varied academic spaces on topics ranging from climate change and extractivism to body politics and health, degrowth, care, population and community well-being. Readers are offered reflections on the authors’ collective learning process as they map out new areas of FPE research and analysis. Read more
