Queer ecology is a theoretical framework that applies queer theory to environmental issues and the construct of ‘nature’. It encompasses a broad constellation of ideas, from dismantling nature-culture and human-nonhuman binaries to expanding the notion of queer kinship into the more-than-human world. But what does dismantling these binaries mean in practice? What lessons in relationality and connection can we learn from our more-than-human kin? Can understanding evolution through co-operation instead of competition help us to collectively imagine systems based on mutualism rather than parasitism?
These are just some of the questions that we will collectively unravel and consider during the 3 ECTS capita selecta course “Queer Ecologies”.
