Feminist Theory Envir Justice

Feminist Theory and Environmental Justice
How does our individual standpoint shape what we consider to be unfair? In what ways do decades-old policies shape present-day environmental disparities? Is the human body itself an environment? Where does nature end and humanity begin? In this course, we will use feminist theory to explore key environmental (in)justice concerns. Theoretical frameworks incorporated into this course include ecofeminism, feminist science studies, feminist political ecology, and critical race theory. Students will have the opportunity to examine the relationship between humans and the environment to better understand environmental hazards and racial, class, and gender inequality worldwide. 3 hrs. lect/disc. (This course counts as an approved social science cognate for environmental studies majors.)
