I like to hoe my own row: A Saskatchewan farm woman’s notions about work and womanhood during the Great Depression. Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies, 26 (3), 135-67. • You have a handout for this lecture • Nature Timelines: recall your own nature timeline data • Bye Reading: – Some key factors leading up to Great Depression – Bye’s research question, her methodology, and her reasons for her research – Kate’s (Bye’s great-grandmother) internalization of the norm that men were heads of households and owned the farm and had the most rights concerning the farm and the family – “Double-Standard Value System” in farming re: gender, heads of families when men left farms to find work, family property and task divisions, reproductive challenges, and other key findings of Bye’s research that are included on your handout Summary of Ideals presented in Bye’s article (on handout): • Women married into farming; it was ideal for women to marry in their teens and take their husbands’ names • Property/Farms/Crops were owned by men and not women • Large families were desired (to work…just as in Roman times, for soldiers) • Men were heads of farm families and women were to be subordinate to men; they could legally override their wives’ wishes at any time • Men’s work was more valuable than women’s work (Kate worked 17 hours/day into her 70s); women’s pension money was spent altruistically • Women put their husbands’ needs ahead of their own • Men made most major and minor decisions on the farm and in government • Sask. Farm families held major positions in Protestant Church of Canada • Women were resourceful and valued their own work according to personal satisfaction and social ideals; however, they denied themselves “luxuries” such as trips to visit family or radios • Women reinforced their feminine identity according to dominant gender ideals • Land was divided among males in the family; things like dishes went to daughters • “Work was the sum of a good woman’s life” (Bye, 2004, p. 142). Does this apply to men? • Women were often isolated on farms, even when pregnant and raising children • Women were responsible for teaching the moral, religious, and social values to their families • Gender boundaries were work boundaries: Women and men did each other’s gender-ascribed tasks ONLY if someone was away or ill • Farm families were strongly connected to religion • Canadian Government: women’s work was just what they did as part of their gender role and was worth little to no monetary value • Women were denied land and farm equipment if they were married, keeping men as the head of families • Christine Bye (author): her ideals about being a productive and meaningful member of her family were severely disrupted when she attempted to purchase part of her family’s farmstead and was refused on the basis of her gender; her parents wanted to “keep it in the family” so they only sold/gave the land to males in the family. Lecture 15 Wed., Mar. 3 Reading 1 Handout Brown, T. and Morgan, B. (1984). Tom Brown's field guide to living with the earth (pp. 19-27, 193-197, 204-205). New York, NY: Berkley Books. Reading 2 NET Becoming an Outdoors Woman® Nova Scotia. http://www.gov.ns.ca/natr/outdoor/default.htm • You have a handout for this lecture • Gender implications in nature education – The ability and access to nature education can differ between women and men, mainly due to how women have less disposable income, less flexibility to leave work, more childcare issues than men • Brown and Morgan Reading: – gender-laden language in the quotes on the slides from the reading – counterculture against Tom Brown, as shown in the link on Slide 8; does it matter if Stalking Wolf/Grandfather existed? • Becoming an Outdoor Woman Reading: – BOW website link on Slide 9; what are the main differences (concerning language used and types of skills and workshops offered) between that and the website for Tom Brown’s Tracking School? Lecture 16 Mon., Mar. 8 Reading Murray, D. (2007). The civilized homosexual: Travel talk and the project of gay identity. Sexualities, 10 (1), 49-60. • You have two handouts for this lecture; one contains the lecture notes; the other contains a tourism flyer • Tourism: GENERAL • 1. Material culture of tourism and Foucault’s concept of “genealogy” – example: suitcase • 2. “Tourist gaze” • 3. Tracking tourism - government • 4. Locals and tourism – can have both positive and negative effects on locals; locals often view their environments differently than tourists; local cultures and societies can be altered or even wiped out • 5. Ecotourism – Slide 15 – the main tenets of the International Ecotourism Society: conservation, community, sustainability, responsible travel, and improving well-being of locals and their environments • 6. Critiques of tourism - mainly through the “commodification of nature” • 7. Social construction of nature – mainly through selecting aspects of nature/environments so we can reflect on them later when we’re back home • 8. “Wilderness ideal” - we re-design nature in order to fulfill Romantic human ideals about what nature means at the time • 9. “Ghosts of place” – travel to places in search of the symbolic remnant of a person, event, or thing. • Continued... SPECIFIC Examples • 10. Rosie’s Cruises – gay travellers stay longer, spend more than non- gay travellers; Mayor Kelly welcomes Rosie to Halifax; - differences between mainstream Carnival Cruise Line and Rosie Family Cruise ads • 11. Sexuality and tourism in Canada – Canada is a big draw for international travellers because it combines two robust social institutions: marriage and tourism; a Canadian-based marriage is usually recognized under International Law, even if a couple’s home base does not – this is problematic and highly political • Murray Reading: – Main findings (on handout); complexity of gay travel – not “just gay people travelling;” gays often driven underground to gain local knowledge and enjoy themselves safely, particularly at non-gay-friendly destinations where laws (such as the Barbados Law) are anti-gay practices (and anti- gay assumptions of practices); gay travellers, like non-gay travellers, might impose their own cultural ideals and practices on local culture and are not exempt from negatively impacting local culture Lecture 18 Mon., Mar. 15 Reading 1 Marshall, L.
