In this course we will discuss different approaches which analyze the relationship between the social, the natural, and the economic. Our main focus will be a queer and ecofeminist perspective. The course brings together texts from diverse horizons within the framework of feminist political ecology.
The seminar is based on intensive lecture, and participants should be willing to read and prepare properly the assigned texts.
