I'm excited to visit UC Riverside on November 19th, as part of their Sustainability Studies speaker series. At Riverside, students can earn a B.S. in Sustainability Studies. What is totally cool is that this major is housed in the Department of Gender and Sexuality studies! As the department puts it,
"Substantively speaking, sustainability is inherently a gendered issue in many parts of the world because of how environmental changes affect men and women differently, based on their division of labor and social statuses. Gender also is a critical element in devision and implementing sustainable practices around the world Gender & Sexuality studies as a discipline have a long tradition of development research methods aligned with social justice that can be applied to studies of sustainability issues."
I couldn't agree more, and I am looking forward to learning about this awesome program.
