Active Environmental Citizenship

keynote lecture on ecofeminism

Ecofeminist theory focuses primarily on the epistemological unmasking of the logic of domination as the instrument of the Eurocentric patriarchal culture in its oppression of women and nature in general. The logic of domination lies at the base of the dualisms of the Judeo-Christian tradition, the mechanistic science and philosophy of the Enlightenment and the desacralization of the earth. Because ecofeminist spirituality draws on non-Eurocentric traditions, the essential ethicalpolitical question becomes how to incorporate these traditions into ecofeminist thought/action without perpetuating dualistic misconceptions. This idea of the sacred and spiritual reflects the basic ecological understanding that dualism can only be transcended through the acceptance of difference, and difference can only be preserved by fostering relationships.

The lecture will be conducted in Croatian. English translation will be provided.
