New book: Saving Our Cities 0 W. Goldsmith New Book Announcement I am pleased to announce the publication of Saving Our Cities: A Progresssive Plan to Transform Urban America. The book is available from Cornell University Press or from Amazon. Brief editorial reviews appear at each site. In Saving Our Cities I argue that the most important 'urban' policies we can pursue are those that are not actually regarded as 'urban' at all. To improve our cities we need to pay close attention to damages that come from "upstream." These damages disproportionately harm urban areas. Federal and state decisions, often in suport of corporate goals, harm city residents by promoting austerity, unequal schools, bad food, and the drug war. The time is right for cities (and city planners) to push for more enlightened state and federal action. For more information on Saving Our Cities, click on the CUP site below or search on Amazon.com: http://www.cornellpress.cornell.edu/book/?GCOI=80140100510000

Planning in a time of Black Lives Matter et alia 2 J. Thomas Great question to post, June and I really appreciate the vital resource shared by Joe. Finding ways that planning can intersect with the vision and policy demands articulated on the portal would be a start. I think it also means foregrounding the essential research by June herself and other planning scholars in our curricula that have uncovered the ways that planning tools have been both a part of creating present day disparities and the creative ways we can use plans, zoning, participation, codes etc to dismantle the legacy of institutional racism. Leigh Graham shared a great set of resources for integrating racial justice into our syllabi (links copied below) and called for a planning version. http://www.blacklivesmattersyllabus.com/ http://www.showingupforracialjustice.org/ http://cmsimpact.org/resource/beyond-hashtags-ferguson-blacklivesmatter-online-struggle-offline-justice/ https://sociologistsforjustice.org/ferguson-syllabus/ http://blackyouthproject.com/digital-media-and-struggles-for-justice-curriculum/

Join Us for the Seventh Annual Dimensions of Political Ecology (DOPE) Confe 0 E. Huntley Please share widely! Seventh Annual Dimensions of Political Ecology Conference February 24 – 25, 2017 University of Kentucky (Lexington, Kentucky, USA) The University of Kentucky Political Ecology Working Group invites you to participate in the seventh annual Dimensions of Political Ecology Conference (DOPE), taking place February 24-25, 2017, in Lexington, Kentucky, USA. DOPE has become a key international forum for graduate students and faculty at all stages in their careers, fostering critical interdisciplinary discussion of urgent topics including: rural social movements; food systems; complexity in ecological and social systems; decolonization, knowledge, and difference; science and technology studies; neoliberal natures and climate justice; and feminist political ecologies, among many more. Over 300 scholars, activists, and environmental professionals attended DOPE 2016, representing dozens of disciplines and more than 100 institutions spread over four continents. We encourage you to contribute to the intellectual vitality and continued success of the conference by organizing a session for DOPE 2017. The conference is open to a wide range of substantive foci, theoretical lenses, and methodological approaches. The DOPE organizing collective is thrilled to announce two of this year’s featured speakers: Keynote Speaker: Sandra Harding, PhD (University of California, Los Angeles Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Education and Gender Studies and Michigan State University Distinguished Affiliate Professor of Philosophy). Welcome Address: Paul Robbins, PhD (University of Wisconsin–Madison, Director of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies) Call for Organized Sessions The DOPE Organizers strongly encourage participants to organize their own sessions, or to join sessions organized by other participants, rather than submit individual ‘orphan’ papers. To organize your own session, please: Draft a Call for Papers (CFP). For guidance, reference the wide variety of CFPs from previous DOPE conferences, available via our website. Email your CFP to the DOPE Organizers at ukpewg@gmail.com. You should distribute it among your colleagues and to relevant listservs. Conference registration will open in October 2016. All participants in your session must have registered and paid by the final registration deadline (December 1, 2016). As such, we suggest that you establish a session deadline of November 24 or earlier. After you have submitted your call, we will send you a Google Form that you will have to complete. This will confirm the final composition of your panel, including participants’ names, institutions, abstracts (300 word limit), titles, keywords, discussants, organizers, chairs, and other relevant information. We will ask that you be as detailed as possible and send this information before the final registration deadline (December 1, 2016). Guidelines and Suggestions for Session Organizers When planning, remember that each session is 100 minutes long, and we strictly limit organizers to two session slots. While we welcome conventional paper sessions, we also encourage organizers to consider workshops, panel discussions, lightning talks, or other session styles. Each DOPE participant may present in one session, and also serve as a discussant or panelist in ONE additional session. We ask that participants limit themselves to two conference activities. Undergraduate students are asked to submit their papers to our Annual Undergraduate Symposium. Individual Abstracts We strongly encourage participants to submit abstracts in response to CFPs being circulated (follow listservs and check our website for new CFPs); however, we will accept individual abstracts. Abstracts submitted to the conference individually rather than in response to specific CFPs will be sorted thematically, and cannot be guaranteed placement in the conference schedule. Abstracts or proposals should be no more than 300 words in length and include titles and three to five keywords. Please submit only one abstract to ukpewg@gmail.com. The deadline for abstract submissions is the conference registration deadline (December 1, 2016). Registration Registration will be linked from our website starting in October 2016, and ending December 1, 2016, with no extensions. The conference registration fee is $45 for graduate students, and $90 for faculty and non-academics. There is no fee for undergraduate participants. All University of Kentucky students register for free. Follow us on Twitter at @ukpewg or on Facebook as the University of Kentucky Political Ecology Working Group. Visit our website, www.politicalecology.org. Please send any questions to the DOPE Organizers at ukpewg@gmail.com.

In this first feature, I share our efforts related to diversity. There is perhaps no greater issue for the future of planning than ensuring diverse and traditionally underrepresented voices are fully present in our field. Read more about our strategies to expand diversity, social justice, and inclusion. I invite you to participate in the discussion and add your comments! http://goo.gl/7eu73s Best -- Marlon

The CV Book is widely used by Planning Departments conducting faculty searches; many people who appeared in previous editions are convinced that it played an important role in their successful job search. Most CVs are from those with an earned PhD in Planning or a related field who are just starting their careers. Feel free to include your CV if you already have a faculty position and are considering a move OR if you're ABD and almost ready. We occasionally get resumes from those with Masters degrees and practicing planners who hope to teach. If you are not sure where to start, try here: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/641/01/ . If you’d like your two page CV to appear in the next edition of the FWIG book, please send a PDF version of a two page CV as an attachment to an email to the address below. We will NOT accept any other format. We will NOT include more than two pages. PLEASE CONFORM TO THE REQUIREMENTS BELOW. No more than 2 pages; At least one inch margins; At least 12 point type; Do NOT paginate; When you submit your resume, include explicit instructions for how your name should read in two ways: 1) FIRSTNAME M.

Additional suggested guidelines Print your NAME in 16-18 point type at the top – not “resume” or “vitae;” Consider what the two pages look like – your experience and background should be easy to see; Think about what the two pages say about you – your strengths and skills should jump right out; and, Check the current CV Book on the ACSP website for guidance. Please indicate two specializations under which you’d like your resume to be categorized (listed below). Because we very occasionally add a new category you may ALSO list a category not on the list below; if we get three or more requests for the same new category we will add it.
