Stewart, Alistair James – Journal of Environmental Education, 2018
This article enacts Deleuze and Guattari's (1987) concept "assemblage" to craft a riverScape pedagogy that is informed by, and responsive to, the Murray Cod, the river, and its circumstances.

Kopnina, Helen – Journal of Environmental Education, 2016
Stefan Bengtsson's commentary about policy hegemony discusses the alternative discourses of socialism, nationalism, and globalism.

It will be argued here that most policy choices promoting…
