Conference Theme
Resilience in the Face of Resource Extraction: Ethnobotany and Exploitation.
This conference will discuss approaches to protecting biodiversity and cultural traditions in times of economic transition. The coalfields of southern Appalachia embody the tensions between economic and environmental sustainability. Traditional Appalachian culture is deeply connected to the native flora and fauna, yet resource extraction continues to shape the geography and economic future of the region.
