Environmental Pedagogies and Early Childhood Education
My current research traces the common world relations of children with places, materials, and other species. In particular, I am interested in the real life-worlds that 21st-century children inherit, inhabit, and share with others – human and more-than-human; and how these life-worlds are shaped by the legacies of anthropogenic environmental damage, imperial expansion, colonial dispossession, global inequalities, and displacements. I am keenly interested in how we, as educators, can develop pedagogies that attend to children’s real world relations in the places they inhabit.
