Ecomodernism 2019: Environmental Policy After Neoliberalism?

September 22 – 24, 2019 Middleburg, VA

At Ecomodernism 2019, we’ll ask whether is something new here, or are we just relitigating debates that environmentalists have been having for decades, pitting innovation against regulation and carbon pricing versus clean energy subsidies? Why, despite the nostalgia of the Green New Deal, is almost no one involved advocating for public power? Does the Populist right have a vision for the environment beyond exploiting it? Is there still a role for markets and innovation? And is there a Hamiltonian fusion where some of these differing agendas might intersect? Please join us for two nights this fall at the Salamander Resort in Middleburg, Virginia.
