Women, Animals, Nature

PHIL 216
Fall 2014 not offered
Crosslisting: FGSS 214, ENVS 214
Certificates: Environmental Studies, Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

This course will focus on the gendered aspects of human relations with the rest of the natural world. Popular views about women's special relation to nature will be challenged while nonetheless exploring the ways that women, animals, and nature are thought to be "others." This course will also provide the analytical tools necessary to understand and analyze the roles that actual women (modified by race, class, and sexuality) play in reconceptualizing and reshaping relationships to the more than human world.
