Throughout the history of the environmental movement, women have contributed important perspectives to understanding the human relationship with other life, and the actions that threaten this relationship, and indeed, the web of life itself. From Rachel Carson’s clarion call that awakened citizens to the dangers of uncontrolled pesticide use to Terry Tempest Williams’ meditations on place and family, the insights and moral clarity of women authors have been central to understanding and repairing socio-ecological relationships. This course delves into the contributions of five significant authors, as we read and discuss one environmental classic each week. We will examine each author’s perspectives on questions of morality, liberation, and freedom. Priority to ESR and PCC students
