Topics course. This multi-disciplinary course explores key debates and theoretical approaches involved in understanding environmental concerns, as well as the role of art and cultural production in social movements, in Latin America from a gender and justice perspective. With Latin American women's and environmental movements as our lens, we will map the politics and poetics of environmental justice in Latin America from the early 20th century to the present. Through films, memoirs, ethnography, music and narrative fiction we will explore how women's cultural and social activisms have articulated the multiple ways that gender, class and race mediate paradigms of political-environmental justice. Enrollment limited to 14.
