Russell, Constance L. – Environmental Education Research, 2006
In this article, the author discusses the implications of articles by Louise Chawla (1998) and Karen Malone (1999a) for "doing research."

Malone, Karen – Environmental Education Research, 2006

McKenzie, Marcia – Environmental Education Research, 2005
Described as "post-experimental" and of the "post-post period," the current moment in social science research is typified by multi-voiced texts, researcher reflexivity, cultural criticism, and experimental works; characteristics in keeping with post-structurally informed understandings of social science research as contingent, evolving and messy.…

Payne, Phillip G. – Environmental Education Research, 2005
This response to McKenzie's "post-post" concerns about environmental education research draws upon empirical, conceptual, anecdotal, metaphorical, imaged and poetic means to help the researcher "reassemble" the researcher/ed by attending to her/his relational body and embodiment of various, often hegemonic, socially constructed environmental…

Russell, Constance L. – Environmental Education Research, 2005
While McKenzie mentions in passing her concern about anthropocentrism and human oppression of the natural world, she is mostly silent about the role of "nature" in post-post approaches to environmental education research. If one takes feminist poststructuralist ideas about voice and representation seriously, surely the place of "nature" in…
