Fall 2018 not offered
FGSS 214, ENVS 214|
|Certificates: Environmental Studies, Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory|
|Course Cluster: Animal Studies|
This course will focus on the gendered aspects of human relations with the rest of the natural world. We will explore ecofeminist analyses and challenge popular views about women's special relation to nature. 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 other animals and the more-than-human world.
