GPS 6122 - Ecofeminism

Cross-Listed As: GPS 4122

This course will focus on the history and evolution of ecofeminist thought. The course will explore the movement from its theoretical foundation in the 1970s until today. At stake will be an evaluation of the primary arguments in the discourse. Specifically, students will examine the essentialist (spiritual) and material (political) camps within ecofeminism criticism. The course will ground students in the basic principles of feminism, colonialism and Marxism in order to better facilitate an understanding of ecofeminism. Students should leave the class with a clearer idea of how Western Philosophy understands space and place through the same patriarchal lens focused on woman since Plato’s time.
