Call for Papers – Graduate Student Research Competition

Graduate Student Research Competition for Indiana Dunes Environmental Congress 2025

Call for Papers 
MS Word | PDF


The Hermeneutics in Real Life project (hinrl.org), in association with the Society for Ricoeur Studies (ricoeursociety.org), is excited to announce a Call for Papers for the Environmental Humanities Congress: Indiana Dunes in the Calumet, to be held from June 19-22, 2025. The purpose of this Call for Papers is to invite graduate students to participate in a competitive awards program for research projects focused on environmental justice and ecological resilience in the Indiana Dunes and Calumet Region on Lake Michigan. A Research Resources page has been set up to point researchers to the large quantity of publicly available research on the conference theme. Although the Congress is an interdisciplinary event, our great hope is that hermeneutic scholars will make a major showing at the Congress and become a central part of the interdisciplinary conversation. Please see the wealth of hermeneutically inflected research themes for possible paper topics on the Congress website.   

As many as twenty $750 honoraria will be awarded to support the presentation of graduate student research at the Congress. Research paper proposals can be submitted to the Competition from now until November 1, 2024. Award announcements will be made December 1, 2024. To apply, graduate students should submit an extended abstract (450-600 words) and a carefully constructed bibliography in a single PDF document to jarthos@iu.edu. Details on submission guidelines are contained in the Call for Papers. We also invite you to visit the conference website to sign up for event notifications.

This is an exceptional opportunity for graduate students to engage in place-based, interdisciplinary research that contributes to the growth of environmental humanities and hermeneutical studies. We strongly encourage all interested graduate students to submit their proposals and be part of this exciting event!
