Recognising Women in Environmental Education Pedagogy and Research: Toward An Ecofeminist Poststructuralist Perspective.
Gough, Annette Greenall
This paper argues that in the past, women have been overlooked in most environmental education programs through being subsumed into the notion of "universalized people." Alternately, it is suggested that women have distinctive contributions to make to environmental education pedagogy and research which needs to be foregrounded. The paper is organized into three parts. Part I presents the findings of research into the gender and language bases of UNESCO discourses on environmental education. Part II discusses activities attempted to date to recognize women in environmental education pedagogy and research. Part III presents some pedagogical and research principles intended both to destabilize current approaches and to provide a worthwhile and effective strategy for reconstituting environmental education as a more democratic human science. Contains 68 references. (LZ)
