Paul Pulé about the workshop serie
"Conceptualisations of man, specifically global Northern, white, settler colonial, industrialised, wealthy and working, heteronormative, cis-males, have long been transgressing planetary boundaries. Alarmingly, these industrial/breadwinners (Hultman & Pulé, 2018) have been socialising essentialist notions of manhood and masculinities, and remain unmarked. Through gendered essentialisms, they disregard, alienate, and subordinate those humans and other- than-humans who are ‘otherised’, effectively locating select men in particular as the principal barriers to global sustainability. Counter to these life destroying trends, we need to awaken masculinities that are ecological in the broader relational sense of the term; that prioritise simultaneous care for Earth, others and self, and manifest in all people, regardless of the identities that they embrace, along with gendered structures in society as well. This course engages with the multifarious processes and cycles of other-than-human Nature accordingly".
