Busch, K. C.; Henderson, Joseph A.; Stevenson, Kathryn T. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
In this commentary, we reflect on the articles in this special collection from our lens as scholars who have chosen to conduct research with a focus on climate change education. We start with statements of positionality, as certainly our own experiences and philosophical stances shape our work and reflections included here. Afterwards, we present…

Gleason, Tristan – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This commentary first seeks to situate the broad themes of Bruno Latour's work by discussing how particular texts and ideas have influenced the author's thinking about science, the environment, education, and research methods that enable generative approaches towards these phenomena. Latour's work deftly crosses borders that have long siloed…

Block, Thomas; Goeminne, Gert; Van Poeck, Katrien – Environmental Education Research, 2018
In this response article, we explain why sustainability issues are often interpreted as 'wicked' or unstructured problems and focus on the consequences for education and societal transformation in view of sustainable development. Drawing on Funtowicz and Ravetz' (1993) fourfold 'facts are uncertain, values in dispute, stakes high and decisions…

Bertling, Joy G. – Environmental Education Research, 2018
Augé defined non-place as space lacking meaningful relations with other spaces, historical presence, or concern with identity-space divorced from anthropological place. Rather than space as historically-centered, marked and fashioned by social bonds, Augé's non-place represents a de-centering of space, a movement away from cities, dwelling places…

Todd, Sharon – Environmental Education Research, 2016
One of the major points to grow out of the four papers presented in this issue is how to think of education in relation to the various challenges facing the biosphere, facing the future of human and other than human life forms, and facing the sheer difficulties of planning what to do about them. The differences in the role of education, of course,…

Bonnett, Michael – Environmental Education Research, 2013
Making an adequate response to our deteriorating environmental situation is a matter of ever increasing urgency. It is argued that a central obstacle to achieving this is the way that scientism has become normalized in our thinking about environmental issues. This is taken to reflect on an underlying "metaphysics of mastery" that vitiates proper…

Brymer, Eric; Davids, Keith – Environmental Education Research, 2013
This paper proposes how the theoretical framework of ecological dynamics can provide an influential model of the learner and the learning process to pre-empt effective behaviour changes. Here we argue that ecological dynamics supports a well-established model of the learner ideally suited to the environmental education context because of its…

Yocco, Victor; Danter, Elizabeth H.; Heimlich, Joseph E.; Dunckel, Betty A.; Myers, Chris – Environmental Education Research, 2011
Modern zoological gardens have invested substantial resources in technology to deliver environmental education concepts to visitors. Investment in these media reflects a currently unsubstantiated belief that visitors will both use and learn from these media alongside more traditional and less costly displays. This paper proposes a model that…

Garrard, Gregory – Environmental Education Research, 2010
Place-based ecocritical pedagogy (PBEP) has been a key part of ecocriticism since the 1980s. In the last 10 years, the critical, theoretical, scientific and philosophical assumptions with which it has been associated have been subject to sustained critique, and yet PBEP remains the dominant model in pedagogical thinking within the field. In…

Lotz-Sisitka, Heila – Environmental Education Research, 2010
Badiou's ontological work draws attention to multiplicities--the oneness of ontology, which he explains can only become ontologically differentiated into events or sites through political, artistic or amorous practices that philosophies can think and invent from. He also draws attention to the fusion of events and sites, and he explains that…

Payne, Phillip G. – Environmental Education Research, 2010
This response article written from "outside" the Swedish-Danish contexts of this special issue considers how we might highlight and make additional ecocentric meaning of some of the terms most frequently used in this collection. In the first instance my focus is on "meaning" but this is expanded to include other terms such as…
