Vortragende: Prof. Charles Dorn

Climate Change. Species Extinction. Deforestation. Toxic Waste. For more than a century, Americans have quarreled over the causes and consequences of environmental decline.


"My current research reveals that between the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twenty-first centuries, educators, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and others systematically indoctrinated young people into settler-colonial political, economic, and cultural values under the guise of learning about the natural world. Why have Americans long been in conflict over the environment? They were taught mostly through nature rather than for it.

In this talk, I will discuss the origins of his book project as well as the challenges associated with writing an educational history that examines learning both inside and out of formal institutions."
