We have all at one time or another been victims and/or perpetrators of stereotypes. The 1995 issue of Whole Terrain will address this topic and how it affects the environmental professional. Environmental conflicts can divide people along ideological lines, tempting individuals to stereotype allies and opponents. This can take place in the home, the workplace, in community or personal activism, and in the arenas of national or global politics. Stereotypes influence not only our interactions with other people; they can also inform our conceptions of the natural world. How do stereotypes influence environmental decision making? How do they create polarization within environmental discourse? How do they influence our interactions with nature?
We are interested in receiving for consideration submissions which address these questions.
