Revised call for chapters


Deborah Rigling Gallagher & Norman Christensen, Duke University, & R.N.L

(Pete) Andrews, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. SAGE, 2012.


We are seeking scholarly editorial contributions to Environmental

Leadership, a 2-volume, 100-chapter reference handbook that is part of

the new SAGE Reference Series on Leadership. Chapters are anticipated to

be 7000 words.  This is a unique opportunity to help define

environmental leadership.  Academic and public libraries will be able to

purchase the handbook as both a printed and a digital product.


The first volume will look at examples of environmental leadership in a

range of fields, from grassroots efforts to corporate sustainability

initiatives. The topical sections of this 50-chapter volume include:

Perspectives on Environmental Leadership (environmental ethics,

eco-feminism, etc.)

Political and Governmental Leadership

Private Sector Leadership

Nonprofit Leadership

Signaling Events (catastrophes, landmark publications, etc.)

Grassroots Activism

Environmental Leadership in Journalism, Literature and the Arts

Environmental Leadership in Education


In the second volume we seek essays that focus on intractable qualities

of environmental problem solving. We envision essays that focus on how

environmental leadership has been applied to address specific problems,

offering both analysis and advice. The overarching themes of this

50-chapter volume include:


Taking Action in the Face of Scientific Uncertainty

Promoting International Cooperation in the Face of Conflicting Agendas

Addressing Conflicts between Economic Progress and Environmental Protection

Addressing Complex Management Challenges

Addressing Environmental Injustices

Next Generation of Environmental Leaders


If any of these subjects pique your interest, please contact the

managing editor, Deborah Rigling Gallagher at for

details.   She has prepared a preliminary list of articles and will send

topic suggestions in your area of interest.  Please submit proposals (no

longer than 200 words) to her by December 15, 2010.  Provide a brief

summary of your current affiliation, related work, articles, and contact

information.  Chapters will be due May 15, 2011
