Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


This article situates Yann Arthus-Bertrand's 2009 ecofilm, HOME, in a pedagogical tradition of active, sensualist learning that, while not exclusively French, has long been central to French republican educational ideology. It specifically examines the film's use of the estrangement effect, a manifestation in aesthetic terms of object lesson pedagogy, in order to provoke a more careful scrutiny of its principle object of study, the Earth.
