Subject of course

 The Art of Living in Changing Environments – A Feminist Perspective

'... all communities ... are densely material structures that weigh down on us and brand us, albeit at times in invisible ink.'
  - Rosi Braidotti in nomadic subjects, S. 31-32 

As architects we act in complex systems of power relations with material and ecological effects. Considering these, current developments of Feminist Ecologies will contribute a diverse understanding.
