UMass-Dartmouth charges pretty penny for ‘ecofeminism’ course
The University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth has an online “ecofeminism” course in which students can learn about topics like “the oppression of nature.”
“Ecofeminism: Philosophy & Practice,” a three-credit course, is being offered by the university during the 2019 spring semester and the school is charging students $1,218, not including a term registration fee, to take the course, which seeks to study different ecofeminist theories.
The course covers the “study of ecofeminism as systems of oppression based on race, class, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity that stem from a cultural ideology that enables the oppression of nature,” according to its description. “The course explores ecofeminist theories, literature, and practice, including ecofeminist ethics, and the applications of ecofeminism to the lives of individual men and women, as well as cultural institutions and organizations.”
UMass-Dartmouth will aim to teach students various objectives, such as to “define ecofeminism and identify ecofeminist practices,” “understand the roots of ecofeminism and ecofeminist theory,” “gain an understanding of various ecofeminist literary approaches,” “apply ecofeminist analysis to specific literary text,” and more, according to the course syllabus.
The course schedule also states that students will spend various weeks of the class studying topics like “Vegetarian Ecofeminism,” Intersectionality and Connectivity,” “Activism,” and more.
