About this series

This series focuses on new developments in the study of education and environment. Promoting theoretically-rich works, contributions include empirical and conceptual studies that advance critical analysis in environmental education and related fields. Concerned with the underlying assumptions and limitations of current educational theories in conceptualizing environmental and sustainability education, the series highlights works of theoretical depth and sophistication, accessibility and applicability, with critical orientations to matters of public concern. It engages interdisciplinary and diverse perspectives as these relate to domains of policy, practice, and research. Studies in the series may span a range of scales from the more micro level of empirical thick description to macro conceptual analyses, highlighting current and upcoming turns in theoretical thought. Tapping into a growing body of theoretical scholarship in this domain, the series provides a venue for examining and expanding theorizations and approaches to the interdisciplinary intersections of environment and education. Its timeliness is clear as education becomes a key mode of response to environmental and sustainability issues internationally. The series will offer fresh perspectives on a range of topics such as:

  • curricular responses to contemporary accounts of human-environment relations (e.g., the Anthropocene, nature-culture, animal studies, transdisciplinary studies)
  • the power and limits of new materialist perspectives for philosophies of education
  • denial and other responses to climate change in education practice and theory
  • place-based and land-based orientations to education and scholarship
  • postcolonial and intersectional critiques of environmental education and its research
  • policy research, horizons, and contexts in environmental and sustainability education
