2011 Conference

"Confronting Complexity"

 Hosted by the University of Vermont

"AESS recognizes and embraces complexity as the hallmark of our field. Social, physical, biological and ideological factors in environmental problems are intricately linked, and environmental problems are so tightly interconnected that addressing one invariably affects others, limiting our predictive capacity, and challenging the assumptions embedded in our models of natural and social phenomena.  Engaging in dialogues about complexity presents challenges in both classroom and public sphere. Confronting complexity is critical to our ability to develop effective responses, which is why we have chosen this them for our upcoming meeting."
