Section Description

"Like all environmental movements, ecofeminism is concerned with relationships between humans and the natural world. Exploring the connection between environmentalism and feminism, the field of ecofeminist studies specifically addresses the traditional interpretation of "nature" as female (or feminine), the connection between the oppression of women and the exploitation of nature, and ways in which environmental issues often affect women in particular. In this course we will read from a broad range of ecofeminist texts. Our goals will include learning about ecofeminist approaches to literature and studying ecofeminist theory, as well as developing our understanding of the various connections between women, nature, sustainability, and patterns of environmental domination. Our reading list will include authors such as Barbara Kingsolver, Lesley Marmon Silko, Alice Walker, Jane Smiley, Wangari Matthai, Rachel Carson, Val Plumwood, Vandana Shiva, and Carolyn Merchant." Cross-listed with: WGST 179. Prerequisite: ENVS 001, ENVS 002, NR 002, or GSWS 001. Enrollment Limit: 25.
