Curriculum Intertext: Place, Language, Pedagogy

Front Cover
Erika Hasebe-Ludt, Wanda Hurren
P. Lang, 2003 - Education - 302 pages
Curriculum Intertext addresses the spaces between - between disciplines, between different theoretical perspectives, and between getting there/being there and living in current curricular discourse and practice. It is an invitation to curricular scholars to be at home in displacement, to imagine the possibilities of curricular languages that open onto meadowland spaces and mountain terrain spaces, and borderland spaces and in-between coulee spaces. It attends to the physicality and specificity of place and to the ambiguity of the many locations of an evolving curricular discourse. This book articulates the needs of graduate students and instructors in curriculum courses to gain a better understanding of current thinking and research regarding place, language, and pedagogy. Curriculum Intertext encourages each of us to venture across and between, into new lines and spaces, and to search for the poetic, the narrative, and other vital signifiers of curriculum theory, praxis, and research.
