Seneca Falls Dialogues on Teaching Ecofeminism

Seneca Falls DialoguesThe Seneca Falls Dialogues on Ecofeminism (scheduled for Seneca Falls, New York from October 17-19, 2014), is interested in assembling a session about teaching ecofeminism within college classrooms.   For the purposes of the session, “ecofeminism” is broadly to include environmental politics and activism, “natural” parenting practices (such as breastfeeding), animal rights, etc. Possible topics include (but are no means limited to):

o   Teaching ecofeminism in the college classroom: opportunities and challenges
o   Selecting texts and crafting assignments/projects on ecofeminism for undergraduate courses
o   Developing student activism surrounding ecofeminism

The Dialogues is an inherently interactive event. Collaboration with other contributors is sought to create a session in which experiences as educators teaching ecofeminism in college classrooms are shared, and questions and issues generated to discuss with audience members.
