Section Information for Spring 2015

Over the past 30 years, much of the most influential scholarship and activism regarding animal exploitation and animal rights has been produced by people also deeply engaged in feminist, and particularly Black feminist and ecofeminist, scholarship and activism. Drawing on the history of people working at this nexus, this class is designed to integratively and intersectionally apply the ecofeminist lens to an exploration of various forms of animal exploitation and abuse, including the use of animals for mass food production, mass clothing production, pharmaceutical and medical testing, cosmetics testing, and entertainment and sport. Similarly explored through the ecofeminist lens will be the methods and strategies used by organizations and movements in order to eliminate animal exploitation.
