It will also introduce key libraries, methodologies, and platforms available for social science programmers.

European Society for Ecological Economics 2015: Transformations, 30 June - 03 July 2015

ESEE 2015 explores solutions for the transformation to a sustainable society, building on the distinctive contribution of ecological economics, by shining a spotlight on the interdependency of economic activity and natural systems, and identifying options that prioritise human wellbeing within planetary boundaries. The conference will contribute to the dissemination of knowledge on these issues, through oral and poster presentations, keynote lectures from prominent scholars, and lively formal and informal discussions. It also aims to foster future research collaborations between academics and stakeholders, and provide training and learning opportunities for younger researchers through an associated summer school which will feed into the main conference.

2015 Feminist and Women's Studies Association (FWSA) Conference - Everyday encounters with violence: Critical feminist perspectives, 09-11 September 2015

This three-day conference aims to create an inclusive and supportive space for scholars at all career levels to come together in a supportive environment to engage in critical feminist perspectives on violence. We draw upon a wide definition of violence from sources in the arts, humanities and social sciences, seeing this both as an everyday social force inflicting harm, suffering, grief and trauma and as a transformative force that produces gendered agency, social action and resistance.
