The “Nature” of Environmental Education Research From a Feminist Poststructuralist Viewpoint

Annette Gough, Hilary Whitehouse

Abstract


For a generation or more, environmental education discourses have been constructed around persistent Cartesian dualisms of modernist thought that divide an “othered” category of being from that of a constituted homogeneous human identity. During the same period, both feminist and poststructuralist theorizing has acted to destabilize the constitution of identities, revealing knowledge, including environmental knowledge, to be multiple, subjective, contingent, and intimately tied in with embodied experiences of place. We explore some of the contingencies of environmental knowledge as revealed through a poststructuralist feminist research methodology and the place for such understandings within an early twenty-first century vision for environmental education research and practice.
