Reimagining Environmental Education within Academia: Storytelling and Dialogue as Lived Ecofeminist Politics
Piersol, Laura; Timmerman, Nora
Journal of Environmental Education, v48 n1 p10-17 2017
During this time of ecological crises, ecofeminist theory and practice is vital for challenging ecological and social injustice. We begin this article by briefly unpacking the critique of essentialism that has had a silencing and divisive effect on the field of ecofeminism. Through this exploration we reorient away from essentializing or discrediting ecofeminist work and toward maintaining a continual reflexivity as we navigate ahead. Our personal experience is offered as a type of lived politics. Through dialogue, storytelling, and intersectional analysis we reimagine the academic space, each other, and our relations with the natural world. We share our stories to illustrate how ecofeminism has helped us to revise what is possible and powerful in our environmental education practice.
