Foucault on Camp: What Does His Work Offer Outdoor Education?
Zink, Robyn; Burrows, Lisette
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, v6 n1 p39-50 2006
In this paper we examine aspects of French social theorist, Michel Foucault's work and the contributions these can make to understanding practices in outdoor education. We look specifically at his notions of practice, discourse, power and the self and the lines of questioning that these concepts make possible in relation to outdoor education. We conclude with a discussion of some of the challenges of doing research with Foucauldian tools. (Contains 6 notes.)
