Mass extinction, drought, toxic pollution: When the world's on fire, does gender really matter? In this course, we will examine the relationship between the degradation of the earth and the oppression of women, analyzing how novels and films—like The Witch, Mad Max: Fury Road, Okja, Parable of the Sower, Annihilation, and The Vegetarian—link feminist and environmental thinking. Students will develop both analytic and creative skills in their writing assignments, which will include a traditional literary analysis paper, a film review, a zine, "poetree," and a final research paper. Ultimately, we will consider how an interwoven vision of environmental and social justice might help us to live in, write through, and build a more just world beyond our hazardous ecological present.
