This course explores how the environment (both physical and social) shapes, and is shaped by, the roles of men and women in society. The course addresses environmental issues from the dual perspective of gender relations and social justice to advance our understandings of the fundamental relationship between human activities and our physical and social environments. To this end, we work across diverse geographies to explore (1) the social relations underlying environmental problems; (2) the ways in which gender, class, race, and ethnicity intersect in environmental issues; and (3) the social and environmental processes that underlie the construction of gender and the life-worlds of the individuals in those "geographies." We bring a global perspective to the issues by drawing out local-global linkages. Case studies are drawn from North America, Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
