My interdisciplinary work examines the intersections of experiential learning, place/context, environmental ethics, and human-animal relationships. Starting from a feminist epistemological standpoint that understands environmental education as necessarily intertwined with social justice, my teaching practice and pedagogical research bring together content with form by investigating the influence of material and social contexts on how and what people learn about the environment and animals, as well as by developing methods for ethical ways of making knowledge. I am drawn to FES for its commitment to creative and active scholarship, and its encouragement of progressive modes of teaching and learning, which strive to engage with the world beyond the academy to create positive change.
