Arndt, Sonja; Tesar, Marek – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2016
This article explores quality in early childhood education by de-elevating the importance of the human subject and experience, and heightening instead a focus on and tensions with the post-human. The argument traces the intricate web of "qualities" woven throughout entanglements of subjects, objects and things that constitute what is…

Mustola, Marleena – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
The hierarchical human-centric paradigm has been criticized by various movements of posthuman philosophy because this paradigm forgets and dismisses nonhuman beings and entities: animals, nature, objects, and technology. When I developed a course called 'Education and Adaptations of Animal Studies' for university students in 2015, I learned two…

In this essay, I detail the entanglements of three young Black boys -- Million Dollar Man, DJ, and Francisco -- and their interests in and experiences with WWE wrestling.

Somerville, Margaret; Powell, Sarah J. – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
This article addresses the problem of writing the posthuman in educational research. Confronted by our own failures as educational researchers within posthuman and new materialist approaches, it seeks a more radical opening to Lather and St Pierre's question: 'If we give up "human" as separate from non-human, how do we exist? … Are we…

We explore the way dominant political discourses are perceived to influence developing professionalisation of early childhood in three contexts.

Fairchild, Nikki – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2019
Engaging with posthuman theorising, this article puts to work a number of concepts to produce generative reimaginings of early years leadership. In 1992, Deleuze argued that we are witnessing a transition from societies of confinement to 'societies of control'. In societies of control, power operates through neo-liberal corporate worlds via a…

Chan, Betty; Choy, Grace; Lee, Angie – International Journal of Early Childhood, 2009
This paper argues that Chinese value of "He" (13158_2009_BF03168877_f1.jpg) or Harmony can contribute to understanding sustainable development as the concept encompasses the relationships between human and nature (ecological sustainability), and between human and human (social and economic sustainability). This interconnectedness with…

Grotzer, Tina A.; Solis, S. Lynneth; Tutwiler, M. Shane; Cuzzolino, Megan Powell – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Understanding complex systems requires reasoning about causal relationships that behave or appear to behave probabilistically. Features such as distributed agency, large spatial scales, and time delays obscure co-variation relationships and complex interactions can result in non-deterministic relationships between causes and effects that are best…

Epistemology is a branch of philosophy that focuses on the source, nature, limitations, system and accuracy of human knowledge. Children's epistemological views start to develop in the very early years as they gradually develop the ability to understand others' beliefs, actions, and desires, with primary attention to the onset of this cognitive…

The concept of nature and how humans relate to nature provide the framework for this philosophical discussion on challenges facing the evolving field of early childhood environmental education.
