Revised CFP: Environmental Justice in North America

The property
CALL FOR PAPERS (REVISED): “Environmental Justice in North America” Chapter proposals on select topics (listed below in bold) are invited for inclusion in Routledge’s “Environmental Justice in North America” volume.  In particular I am looking for chapters on Alaska Natives and First Nations and Métis (a separate chapter will cover the Inuit Circumpolar Council). The volume will serve as a required or supplementary textbook in BA/MA courses on American, North American, and Global environmental history, Indigenous studies, environmental studies, sustainability studies, peace and justice studies, and Race/Ethnic studies.  It will offer instructors and students a range of accessible essays offering an historical overview of key events, issues, and movements on each subject which will illuminate the challenges of confronting environmental racism, environmental classism, and climate change, written by a set of authors that reflects the diversity of communities examined in the book. Each chapter will be roughly 9-10k words (including notes and selected bibliography); provide a comprehensive survey of the diverse peoples and issues related to the chapter topic; and include one or two primary documents. Contributors will receive (per Routledge’s policy) 2 copies of the volume: a hardback and either a paperback or E-book version; royalties will be donated to North American environmental justice/climate justice organizations featured in the book. Interested authors should send a short abstract (roughly 250 words) of the proposed chapter and a short version c.v. to Dr. Paul C. Rosier ( by July 15, 2021.  Chapter drafts will be due by July 15, 2022; final drafts will be due by September 1, 2022. 1: Introduction: Paul C.
