Affifi, Ramsey – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
Education has institutionalized a process that reifies cultures, ecological communities, and ultimately evolution itself. This enclosure has lessened our sensitivity to the pedagogical (eteragogical) nature of our lived relations with other people and with other living beings. By acknowledging that learning and teaching go on between species,…

Timmerman, Nora; Ostertag, Julia – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
Young children's media regularly features animals as its central characters. Potentially reflecting children's well-documented affinity for/with animals, this media--books, toys, songs, clothing, electronic media, and so on--carries with it many explicit and implicit messages about animals and human-animal relationships. This article focuses on…

MacPherson, Seonaigh – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
Begun as a eulogy to the author's late companion dog, Tashi, this paper presents a "petagogy" of emotions as a strategy to enhance human apprehension of our impact on the greater-than-human-world. Occupying the null curriculum of modern education, both emotions and non-human animals have been ill-served by science and the disciplinary organization…

Kuhl, Gail J. – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
This paper encourages environmental and humane education scholars to consider the ethical implications of how nonhuman animals are represented in research. I argue that research representations of animals can work to either break down processes of "othering," or reinforce them. I explore various options for representing other animals, including…

Barrett, M. J. – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
Epistemologies, ontologies, and education based on colonial Eurocentric assumptions have made animism difficult to explicitly explore, acknowledge, and embody in environmental research. Boundaries between humans and the "natural world," including other animals, are continually reproduced through a culture that privileges rationality and the…

Pedersen, Helena – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
This article seeks to contribute to the idea of "posthumanist education" by unfolding an educational situation where an assemblage of two humans and 33 former battery hens is gathered to carry out a so-called cognitive bias experiment for two days. A Deleuzian repertoire is set in motion to configure the dynamics of hens intervening in…

Castellano, Maria; Quirino de Luca, Andrea; Sorrentino, Marcos – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2011
This article addresses the interface between environmental and humane education, as a theoretical and practical emerging field in Brazil. We begin by presenting conceptual similarities that, in our view, underpin and justify the need for a growing connection between the two fields of research and educational practice. We then describe an…

Greenwood, David A. – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
As part of the 2009 North American Association of Environmental Education Research Symposium, this article addresses the cultural and theoretical frameworks that we bring to environmental education, the web of ideas and experiences that define the scope and purpose of the work in its geopolitical context. Originally delivered as a keynote address…

Oakley, Jan; Watson, Gavan P. L.; Russell, Constance L.; Cutter-Mackenzie, Amy; Fawcett, Leesa; Kuhl, Gail; Russell, Joshua; van der Waal, Marlon; Warkentin, Traci – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
The "question of the animal" represents an area of emergent interest in the environmental education field, as researchers critically consider human-animal relations and animal advocacy in their work. Following a group discussion at the 10th Seminar in Health and Environmental Education Research, the authors of this paper share experiences,…

Harvester, Lara; Blenkinsop, Sean – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
This paper begins by suggesting that issues of social and ecological justice are not mutually exclusive. They are tied together through the logic of domination which is, in turn, sustained by oppositional value dualisms such man/woman, human/nature, and white/non-white. As such, we suggest that environmental education must deal with the shared…

Scott, Charles – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
Martin Buber's philosophy of dialogue offers an epistemic and ontological orientation upon which an ecological identity can be established as part of an integrated, environmental education. I consider here the significance of a relational self in establishing this ecological identity, as well as the benefits from doing so. This relational,…

Blenkinsop, Sean; Judson, Gillian – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
This paper sets out to explore the role of story in education. Through the employment of story itself as medium the discussion examines how story is currently used in educational settings. The next step is to posit story as a learning tool and curricular heavy-lifter through introduction to the theory of Imaginative Education as proposed by Kieran…

Together with ubiquitous agent evocateurs, Coyote and Raven, the authors engage trickster discourse and narrative shape shifting as they share research protocols and community conversations based on their research with the four Lower Stl'atl'imx communities (Xa'xtsa, N'Quat'qua, Skatin and Samahquam First Nations) of British Columbia, Canada, in…

This paper contextualizes the 5th World Environmental Education Congress, discusses the theoretical underpinnings of the Congress theme "Earth Our Common Home," and relates this theorizing to the research project that was woven through the Congress. We provide a rationale for engaging in this research project, as an invitation for…

Participants in the 10th International Seminar in Health and Environmental Education Research Symposium in Montebello, Quebec were presented with the challenge of considering the question, "If you could only write one book and one paper in your life from now on, what would the titles be?" The task was structured to stimulate thought…
