Ecología política feminista: perspectivas situadas, compromisos emergentes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This article provides a reflexive overview of developments in Feminist Political Ecology, a field of research and praxis that offers diverse theorisations of social relations of power associated with natures, culture and economies, underpinned by a shared commitment to feminist epistemology, methods and values. With reference to a small, illustrative selection of research papers, I present a situated and consciously partial commentary on Anglophone contributions that I have found resonant in my own research practice, teaching and everyday life. The development of feminist political ecology is considered across four related areas: first, the gender dynamics of resource access and dispossession; secondly, debates around post-humanism, bodies and matter; thirdly, activist and academic considerations of sufficiency, practices of commoning and a feminist ethics of care; and finally, recent efforts to develop a decolonial feminist political ecology. My aim is to show the kinds of questions and concerns that each of these threads raises, as platforms for continuing critical debate.
