Descriere RO

As a follow-up to Towards a Just Curriculum Theory and Curriculum Epistemicide , this

volume illuminates the challenges and contradictions which have prevented

critical curriculum theory from establishing itself as an alternative to dominant

Western Eurocentric epistemologies.

Curriculum and the Generation of Utopia re-visits the work of leading progressive

theorists and draws on a complex range of epistemological perspectives from the

Middle East, Africa, Southern Europe, and Latin America. Paraskeva illustrates

how counter-dominant narratives have been suppressed by neoliberal dynamics

through an exploration of key issues including: itinerant curriculum theory,

globalization and internationalization, as well as utopianism. Foregrounding

critical curriculum theory as a vector of de-colonization and de-centralization,

the text puts forth Itinerant Curriculum Theory (ITC) as an alternative form

of anti-colonial, theoretical engagement.

This work forms an important addition to the literature surrounding critical

curriculum theory. It will be of interest to post-graduate scholars, researchers

and academics in the fields of curriculum studies, curriculum theory, and

critical educational research.
