DOPE 2015 hosted nearly 400 participants and 50 panel sessions across myriad disciplinary and research affiliations from all over the world. The conference featured a keynote address by Dr. Kim TallBear (University of Texas) and a plenary panel with discussion from Drs. Jake Kosek (UC Berkeley), Shiloh Krupar (Georgetown), and Laura Ogden (Dartmouth). Field trips explored regional sustainable agriculture, Lexington history, and the Kentucky bourbon industry. Sadly, due to severe weather, we had to cancel an address by Dr. Paul Robbins and a field trip aimed at coal mining by mountaintop removal.
