Ecological Justice: Patterns of Oppression and Healing

This course explores how the oppression of earth and the oppression of people have gone hand in hand. Drawing from the diverse fields of environmental justice, political ecology, ecofeminism, ecopsychology, and social justice, students will build skills to unravel the patterns of oppression, begin to hold multiple worldviews, and contemplate healing. The class will be highly interactive and requires a deep level of research, presentation, and discussion by all participants, as well as the willingness to work with difficult emotions. As a result of this course, students will have heightened capacities to bring these issues to their work and service to the world. Required for MA Resilient Leadership students (both tracks). Open to graduate students in other programs.
