ENS 300/GEO365 Health and the Environment

Instructor: Nari Senanayake

Meeting Times: MWF 2-2:50 p.m.

Description: In recent years, the challenges of global climate change, infectious disease (re)emergence, and the proliferation of new synthetic chemicals have helped recast the environment as an agent of illness. This course analyzes how processes of environmental change influence possibilities for human health over space and time. We will not only consider the health impacts of large scale transformations like climate change and deforestation but also, changes in less obvious environments such as private homes, slaughter houses, and our own and other animal bodies. This course aims to make clear many of the complex and highly contested connections between political economy, environmental change, and health around the world.

GWS 300-001: Topics in GWS: Gender and Disability

Instructor: Anastasia Todd

Meeting Times: TR 2-3:15 p.m.

Description: This interdisciplinary course is informed by the notion that disability is socially constructed, materially experienced, profoundly political, raced, gendered, and classed. The aim of this course is for students to develop and learn to employ a feminist disability studies lens in order to critically analyze how ableism has structured certain bodyminds as “less than,” “unruly,” “mad,” and/or “disposable.” We will also be looking to bodies that may or may not be normatively defined as “disabled,” but who deviate from the “normative body.” We will consider: how has disability, as a political and analytical category, been deployed by the state to manage and control deviant bodies and police the boundaries of ideal citizenship? How do certain bodies become defined as “good” bodies, happy bodies, desirable bodies? How can we envision a disability future? What bodies have been constructed as deserving to live/die/reproduce/be born? How do heteronormativity and disability intersect? What disabled bodies are valuable to this iteration of capitalism? And, what does gender have to do with all of this?
