Abstract:

Summary: "Reconsidering Canadian Curriculum Studies is a thought-provoking book, where curriculum scholars at different stages in their academic careers experiment with innovating theoretical and methodological ways to research the concept of "curriculum." Each chapter showcases examples of the dynamic intellectual work being done within the international field of curriculum studies across the diverse geographical and cultural regions here in Canada and the United States. In this book, the authors provoke us to ask more of curriculum studies in relation to other fields of study like environmental education, anti-racist education, multicultural education, internationalization, indigenousness, cultural studies, cultural geography, interdisciplinary studies, phenomenology, hermeneutics, and poststructuralism. This book is an excellent introductory text for any curriculum studies course either here in Canada or abroad"-- Provided by publisher.
