About the course

Addressing how 'the Social' always involves non-humans and 'the Natural' is inherently social, this course responds to two interrelated challenges: the first is how the construction and performance of gender is inter-implicated with the non-human, and the second how feminist and Gender Studies-informed theories can contribute to knowledge about environmental questions. Informed by two overlapping bodies of work, one from gender studies and the other from animal studies, the course material addresses a series of topics such as gender, race, ability and sexuality from a more-than-human theoretical standpoint and then brings these perspectives to bear on a series of contexts such as agriculture, science, pandemics and environmental change.
