Specialization - Dark Ecology

GEND 3047  Dark Ecology


Any 18 credits completed.


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




What is nature? Is it something that humans are a part of or something we control? Is nature simply the place we go camping and the stuff we plant in our backyards? What if our ideas about nature are helping to cause the current ecological crisis? In this course students will be introduced to emerging interdisciplinary scholarship that challenges and questions how we think about ""nature."" From evolution to Cyborg ecology and beyond students will address how and why Western culture remains so attached to this concept and to naturalizing a variety of ideas that help prevent more socially and environmentally just communities from developing. This course may be credited towards Social Welfare and Social Development.
