This open panel proposal is part of a larger set focused on varied different kinds of problem spaces (rural, urban, irradiated and educational) dealing with environmental injustice. Papers on this open panel will focus on educational spaces, exploring diverse questions: What pedagogical approaches and educational programs (informal and formal, from K-12 through university and adult education) have been developed to address environmental injustice in different settings? How does indigenous, postcolonial and feminist scholarship inform, contribute and challenge more hegemonic pedagogical approaches? How do educators identify and teach complex and overlapping forms of injustice, which combine to produce environmental injustice? How are educational programs challenging epistemic injustice?
The panel extends from and will contribute to the Environmental Injustice Global Record project, designed to connect geographically distributed people working on similar problems, to connect research to teaching, and to build transnational webs of support with community partners. Through side-by-side development of analyses and digital archives focused on environmental injustice in different settings, collaborating researchers are striving to advance both the theory and practice of environmental governance. Presentations on this panel will both share new work and comment on the broader projects' shared analytic framework, digital infrastructure and overall design
We welcome submissions from scholars positioned across the spectrum of educational places and approaches. Collaboratively, we hope to draw connections that juxtapose, engage, create, and challenge ongoing educational practices and concerns to contribute to a global record on approaches that move people and environmental governance forward.
