Summer 2018 Courses GSWS 320-4 Special Topics: “Man’s Best Friend?”: Feminisms Engaging with Nonhumans Thursdays: 13:30 – 17:20

Harbour Centre

Rebecca Scott Yoshizawa

Feminists are increasingly examining how the power structures that produce unjust oppressions for women and other marginalized Others extend to the nonhuman world. This course explores how feminists have theorized, advocated for, and fostered relations with nonhumans such as animals, plants, organic and inorganic matter, and machines. Informed by feminist ethics, science studies, and philosophy, we ask: How do understandings of animals relate to conceptualizations of sex and gender? Are there feminist obligations to animals, plants, bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protists? How does feminism inform and support animal and environmental advocacy? Can nonhumans teach us about ethics, care, and equality?

GSWS 318-4 Sport through a Feminist Lens Mondays: 9:30 – 13:20

Tiffany Muller Myrdahl Consider the following sport “moments”: the persistence of sex-testing that targets female athletes; US athletes kneeling during the national anthem to demonstrate support for the Black Lives Matter movement; continued efforts to change racist team names and mascots; disputes over inequitable resource allocations for men’s and women’s teams; protests in Brazil during the World Cup and Rio Olympics. Analyzing these disparate examples requires asking how relations of power inhabit and become manifest in sport: in its institutions, spaces, media coverage, and popular discourse. This course addresses this and related questions to interrogate the social investment in sport as a “neutral” site where athletic excellence is performed and consumed. We will examine a variety of case studies to elicit discussion and analysis of the role that sport plays in: reinforcing and challenging social relations; urban economies (especially related to leisure and tourism); and nationalism and globalization.

GSWS 411-4 ST: Gendering Environment Wednesdays: 9:30 – 13:20

Tiffany Muller Myrdahl

This course uses a feminist-critical perspective to examine environment, sustainability, and eco-activism, paying particular attention to the social forces that are at work in efforts to address environmental change. The course is grounded in an examination of the production of knowledge and the relationship between nature and culture. It builds upon this foundation to examine case studies in environmental activism and sustainability studies, from Clayquot Sound and Greenham Common to Standing Rock and Site C. Each case study interrogates social relations (e.g., gender, race, colonial history, globalization) and their effects: how ecological change is understood and experienced, and how ecological challenges are addressed at various scales. The course invites students to evaluate individual and community eco-activism, institutional policy initiatives, state governance, and international debates over environmental protection.

GSWS 321-4 ST: Women: Renaissance-Present Wednesdays: 13:30 – 17:20

Evdoxios Doxiadis

European ideas and debates regarding women from the Renaissance to the Present This course examines the perceptions and ideas regarding women, their nature, their roles in society, their rights and obligations, their sexuality, and their relationship to men and other women that were expressed in Europe from the Antiquity to the Present. We will be looking at the changes that European society underwent during that period, the rise of new ideologies and systems of thought and the impact all these had on women. We will be focusing on how women responded to, or initiated, change, as well as the counter-arguments, or new theories, developed to stifle the early women’s movements.
