March Seminar

Wednesday, March 25, 2009 - 12:00 - 1:00pm


Marianne Neuwirth, Ph.D

who will be speaking on

"The Gendering of Nature and its Effects on
Environmental Organizations' Practices"
How might gendered language such as “mother nature” or the masculine notion of self-reliance in the context of “wilderness”
affect policy decisions regarding the natural world? What limits
might these constructions impose on envisioning comprehensive solutions to environmental challenges? 
In this talk, Marianne Neuwirth will focus on the pivotal role
that language and socialization play in defining our ideas about the natural world, and our subsequent decisions in relation to it.
Marianne’s PhD is in Communication, where she developed expertise in the areas of environmental communication and conflict resolution, both from a feminist perspective. She is currently a lecturer in the Center for Teaching and Learning at Stanford.
