Sherman, Brandon J.; Bateman, Kathryn M.; Jeong, Sophia; Hudock, Laura Anne – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2021
For those interested in understanding cultures of learning in both formal and informal science educational contexts, ethnography is often the research approach of choice. Yet ethnography, as a research approach, is far from monolithic. The myriad of nuances, distinctions, and open questions of ethnographic research, employed as full-scale…

Williams, Jill; Tolbert, Sara – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2021
While much research has examined the impact that neoliberal reforms have had on education, very little research has examined science teachers/teaching in particular. In this article, we share findings from a longitudinal study with 9 public school science teachers in Arizona, USA. We argue that neoliberal reforms have positioned science classrooms…

Smith, Dorothy V. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2021
In this article, I use the idea of post-patrimonial governance to consider the science education of future scientists. I argue, with Anna Yeatman, that the politics of our time is structured by a contest between two kinds of post-patrimonial contractualism. Data are reported from a study of contemporary Australian scientists to show that some…

Sedawi, Wisam; Ben Zvi Assaraf, Orit; Reiss, Michael J. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2021
Culturally adapted tools for measuring connectedness to nature are important, since attitudes and perceptions toward nature cannot be universalized. They are influenced by a wide range of factors, like individuals' experience in their home environment, safety concerns and a variety of other sociocultural factors. The purpose of this paper is to…

El Halwany, Sarah; Bencze, Larry; Hassan, Nurul; Schaffer, Kristen; Milanovic, Minja; Zouda, Majd – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2021
In life history methodologies, 'human' lives appear to take primacy over other lives. Within science education literature, life history methods often are approached as reflective tools to make meaning out of teachers' pedagogical practices and commitments. In the present research, we tinker with life history research, to follow its performative…

Feyzi Behnagh, Reza – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
In this commentary, I consider different theoretical and methodological aspects of Davis and Bellocchi's study. I begin by identifying definitions of constructs of emotions and emotional energy. Next, I offer an alternative perspective for the reported findings in light of the control-value theory of achievement emotions. After that, I discuss…

Kwah, Helen – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
In the context of the science versus creationism debate, Elizabeth Watts thoughtfully explores Buddhism as a model of compatibility between science and religion, and as inspiration for the pedagogical potential of mindfulness practices to promote student receptivity to scientific views of evolution. However, Watts focuses on modern Buddhist…
