Vagabonding Slowly: Ecopedagogy, Metaphors, Figurations, and Nomadic Ethics
Payne, Phillip G.
Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, v19 p47-69 2014
Critical environmental education promised a reconstructive critique of any education that reconstituted social and ecological injustices. Post-critical inquiry in environmental education research revitalizes that commitment. The "voices" of the researched and researcher are well represented in this empirical study of a radical curriculum praxis. The dark matter pursued in this study of an environmentally designed vagabonding curriculum and its slow ecopedagogy is the reconciliation of inner-social-outer "natures." A related methodological challenge is to metaphorically and figurationally represent the ecologies of somaesthetics, ethics, and ecopolitics, as they are lived creatively by the subjects of research, including the researcher. This post-critical case study adds to that literature which reflexively addresses various ontology-epistemology tensions and their methodological implications as they are interpreted from within the ecocentric paradigm.
