Gender and Cultural Studies – Gender and Environment (GCST263)

Understanding our place in a changing environment is a 21st century priority. This unit uses feminist frameworks to investigate how environmental problems are shaped by intersecting factors of gender, race, sexuality, ability, economic status, and colonialisms. Drawing on examples such as climate change, toxic contamination, water privatisation, and resource extraction, this unit examines the material and conceptual links between human and non-human natures, and cultural, political, economic and social forces.

Art History and Film Studies – Planetary Art: Nature, Ecology, Environment (ARHT2676)

This unit studies contemporary and historical artists in relation to today’s environmental crisis.

Through visual and textual analysis, students gain interdisciplinary perspectives on art’s place within contemporary posthumanist theories, the significance of ecological thinking to contemporary aesthetics, art’s historical response to the impact of science and technology, and art’s recognition of the importance of Indigenous knowledges to planetary ethics.
