(Thursday September 30 – Saturday October 2, 2010) The regional meeting North American branch of the International Association for the Study of the Commons will have as its theme “capturing the complexity of the commons” reflecting the increasing efforts to understand commons over time at multiple levels of scale. The goal is to foster more discussion and collaboration especially among North American researchers working on commons from an interdisciplinary point of view. We invite scholars from the natural and social sciences as well as humanities and art.
Keynote speakers are Arun Agrawal (University of Michigan), Lisa Graumlich (University of Arizona) and Elinor Ostrom (Indiana University & Arizona State University).
