About this book

Curriculum Studies in India examines Indian scholars in dialogue regarding their intellectual life histories and subjective investments in their field. With chapter introductions by William Pinar, scholars explore their intellectual history and present circumstances of curriculum studies in India, emphasized by their own engagement and research. These works demonstrate the rapidity and scale of economic growth today, and how it creates conflict, dislocation, inequality, and "echoes" of a colonial past now present in globalization. Pinar and his contributors conclude that historical (dis)continuities, cultural conflict, economic globalization, and political tension characterize the present circumstances of curriculum studies in India.

Reviews

"Curriculum Studies in India makes an outstanding contributionto the field. Through the Indian curriculum experts' educational experiences, stances, and perspectives, readers begin to understand the background of colonial history and its influences on education, and how to think about education and curriculum in this internationalization while improving national development. The experiences, achievements, and ideas of these experts in the process of Indian reform can help us clarify what is valuable and significant to the future of education, information that is also valuable to the education systems in other countries." - Ma Yunpeng, Faculty of Education, Northeast Normal University, China
