Introduction to ecofeminism
- Haraway’s manifesto for cyborgs was a resounding confrontation with eco-feminism, such a good starting point. After the more nuanced, less essentialized, approaches of Stacy Alaimo and Cecilia Åsberg – feminist environmental humanities became forms of queer, neomaterialist posthumanitarian practices based on environmental history and ecocriticism.
- Lena Gunnarsson (former gender researcher/future researcher/sustainability researcher at KTH – now at WHITE arkitektbyrå) has written about eco-feminism – available on KTH:s website, in the gender kit (online training tool)
- IN SWEDISH:https://www.kth.se/om/equality/necessaren/filmer-och-texter/miljo/miljo-klimat-och-jamstalldhet-text-1.1193749.
- There is also an online text about gender and science based on feminist history of science – and sustainability.
- Stacy Alaimo – since her thesis has worked with queer criticism of ecofeminism based on Haraway and feminist technoscience studies such as cultural studies and eco-critique – So read Alaimo’s classic texts and books!
