In this session, writers and teachers of ecological literature will use theories of ecofeminism and environmental justice to consider how built urban and suburban spaces exclude or erase “others”—nonwhite, non-cisgendered, poor, disabled bodies. They will also address how female, nonwhite, disabled, queer, underprivileged bodies are stereotypically associated with wildness and discuss strategies for disrupting such traditional binaries as human/natural and civilized/wild.
