Women and Natural Resources
Oregon State University: WGSS 440 Honor (3 credits)
Explores the relationship between women and natural resources. It does so through a sustained inquiry into the “nature of nature,” and how diverse epistemologies and worldviews challenge a single understanding of “natural resources.” At the same time, our course demonstrates that any analysis of “women and natural resources” must address gender more broadly in conversation with race, sexuality, nationality, and class. Anchored by three acclaimed works of nonfiction and memoir by internationally regarded scientists (in forest biology; geobiology & chemistry; biology) this course asks us to think in complex, comparative ways about gender, race, place, community, power, extractive industries, economics, and ethics.
