Animals in Environmental Education
In this course, we'll look at and learn about how animals are framed in Western culture-specifically in educational settings such classrooms, zoos, model farms, nature centers, and more. Grounded in critical animal studies, ecofeminism, and posthumanism frameworks, we will examine explicit and implicit values and curricular approaches to animals in education, including learning with and from companion, wild, and other categories of animals. We review and evaluate literature and media and consider the educational impacts of animal erasure, characterization, sensationalization and other common portrayals.
