PHIL 5521 Women, Nature, and Ecology (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In this course, we will explore the intersections between the concept of the "feminine" and the concept of "nature," especially in reference to ecological issues. Themes will include ways in which feminists have both relied upon and criticized the concept of a feminine "nature"; whether there is a link between the dominance of nature and the domination of women; female embodiment; and concrete global issues facing women in their roles in agriculture, environmentalism, and sustainability.
