Whose Better? (Re)orientating a Queer Ecopedagogy
Russell, Joshua
Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, v18 p11-26 2013
Previous invitations to queer environmental education research and practice have fallen largely silent. This paper seeks to address that silence by orientating ecopedagogy toward a phenomenology of queer experience. Inspired by the utopian promises of the "It Gets Better Project" and ecopedagogy generally, the author suggests that queer phenomenology can offer new insights into ecopedagogy. The hope of a queer ecopedagogy lies in its inclusion of diverse beings and its celebration of (dis)orientating experiences that might lead to more egalitarian and democratic futures.
