Climate Activism, Climate Feminisms


This course turns a feminist lens on the many forms of climate activism that have emerged in recent decades, from fossil fuel divestment campaigns to civil disobedience in legislative offices to mutual aid in frontline communities. We’ll read feminist theories of social change to ask why people turn to particular strategies, individually and collectively. You will become a participant-observer in a local climate movement of your choice, and you will write about what you learn in public forums (including but not limited to letters to the editor, op-eds, and Wikipedia).
