Investigation of the parallel dominations of women and nature, through analysis and reflection on ecofeminist theory, activism, and spirituality. This class is an introduction to the developing field of ecofeminism, which is both an academic subfield of philosophy and environmental ethics, and a type of activism. Students will read some of the most influential writers in the field-theorists, historians, activists, and spiritual revisionists - and consider the implications of their ideas for environmental thought and analysis. Students will also undertake hands-on action projects reflecting ecofeminist principles. Cross-listed with: WGST 179.
