After returning from this month's COCE conference in Boulder CO, at which I heard a number of insightful papers addressed current trends and practices, I decided to launch a new project--a new edited volume that features work exploring theoretical, applied, and critical dimensions of community engagement in environmental decision making at local, regional, national, and global levels.  I have asked Gregg Walker (Oregon State University) and Kathleen Hunt (Iowa State University) to co-edit this project with me (thanks Gregg and Katie!).
