About this book

This book brings together voices and perspectives from across the world and draws in a new generation of curriculum scholars to provide fresh insight into the contemporary field. By opening up Curriculum Studies with contributions from twelve countries—including every continent—the book outlines and exemplifies the challenges and opportunities for transnational curriculum inquiry. While curriculum remains largely shaped and enabled nationally, global policy borrowing and scholarly exchange continue to influence local practice. Contributors explore major shared debates and future implications through four key sections: Decolonising the Curriculum; Knowledge Questions and Curriculum Dilemmas; Nation, History, Curriculum; and Curriculum Challenges for the Future.

Reviews

“This book brings together an array of international curriculum challenges that really do displace the center—and not just by including a majority of authors who write from outside Europe and North America. The collection takes up issues of place, history, environment, First Nations, and post-colonial concerns, not to produce a new model of curriculum but to develop a new kind of critical dialogue about it.”
Lyn Yates, Emeritus Professor, University of Melbourne, Australia

"This volume brings together texts by authors from different countries in which local stories gain prominence by displacing normative meanings of curriculum, thus setting in motion an anti-colonial attitude. Read together, they provoke the strangeness that puts everyone in an eccentric position from where fantasies of globalized identities may be more radically displaced. Like the IAACS Conference from which the chapters presented here were first drawn into complicated conversations, the book itself creates moments of disturbance that foster opportunities for a wider recognition of alterity."—Elizabeth Macedo, Professor, State University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and President (2013-2020), International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (IAACS)
