(cross-leveled with WGST 7350). Explores how gendered social relations affect the relationship between human beings, non-human nature, and the environment. Also examines how historically, the human relationship with nature has been governed by a dualism of culture and nature that enables both an ideology of technical control and the objectification of the environment and people. Draws from ecological feminism, the environmental justice movement, feminist science studies, materialist feminism, and feminist dystopian fiction.

Can only count for one of these categories.
