Call for Papers: 2007 CELA Conference - Due November 15th

Conference Planner, Penn State University

The Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA) invites you to participate in its annual meeting to be held August 15-18, 2007, on the Penn State University Park campus located in State College, Pennsylvania.

Paper, panel, and poster submissions (500-word abstracts) will be accepted online via the conference Web site until November 15, 2006. For conference information and abstract submission, visit:

The conference venue will be the new Stuckeman Family Building, home to Penn State's School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. This 110,000-square-foot facility, a Gold LEED-rated building, will provide ample space for presentations, meetings, and informal gatherings during the conference.

CELA's 2007 program, "Negotiating Landscapes," will feature the following subthemes: declining population/exploding land use; formerly industrial towns seeking revitalization; community-based watershed stewardship; healthy lifestyles in a car-dominated landscape; and recreation on someone else's spoil. Universally, people are waking up to new realities that affect both professional and personal lives and relationships. We face constant change in many arenas of both the public and private sectors, including the environment; politics; the economy; social justice; religion; education; ethics; and so on. These global changes demand that we reconsider their interactions and identify new ways of thinking about problem solving. They result in changes to the positions we adopt and in the active roles as change-makers that we take both individually and as an interdisciplinary discipline. This is the theme for Negotiating Landscapes.
