Educational landscapes: Nature, place and moral geographies

Jo Hickman Dunne, Prof. Sarah Mills

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


In this editorial introduction, we outline recent debates on geographies of education, specifically on themes of nature, place, and outdoor landscapes. We argue for the need to extend these discussions due to the rising popularity and politicisation of educational encounters in outdoor landscapes, as well as their long-standing relationship to a series of moral geographies. We introduce the main focus of the five papers in this themed collection, and show how together, they add to our understanding of the spatialities and experiences of both formal and informal educational sites, through both historical and contemporary perspectives. We reflect on some of the themes that tie these papers together, the UK-based focus of this collection, and its wider geographical contributions.
