Changing Green Subjectivities in Outdoor and Environmental Education: A Qualitative Study
Preston, Lou
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v33 n2 p235-249 2012
This article draws on a longitudinal qualitative study of Australian tertiary students studying Outdoor and Environmental Education. It draws on the work of Foucault and Darier to consider how "environmental governmentality" shapes the conduct, desires and attitudes of these students over time. Attention is drawn to normalising and disciplinary effects of mainstream environmental discourse alongside an exploration of some of the inconsistencies and ruptures in how participants interact with discourses of environmentalism. (Contains 5 notes.)
