ANG 6930 Masculinities, Gender, and Environment

Dr. Paulson

This political ecology course explores how masculinities and femininities are shaped by—and influence—environmental management and the (re)production of rural and urban landscapes. Course participants develop skills and strategies to strengthen their work in conservation and development with gender-aware language, image analysis, survey design, mapping, photovoice, interviews and focus groups, use of contested terms, acknowledgement of own positions in scientific research and professional practice, and capacity to engage interlocutors in their own positionality.
