Understanding our place in a changing environment is a 21st century priority. This unit uses feminist, decolonising, and multispecies, frameworks to investigate how environmental problems are shaped by intersecting factors of gender, race, sexuality, ability, economic status, and colonialisms. Drawing on examples such as climate change, toxic contamination, resource extraction, and biodiversity loss, this unit examines the material and conceptual links between human and non-human natures, and cultural, political, economic and social forces.
