not yet rated|write a review
This volume assembles essays addressing the recurring question of the 'subject,' understood both as human person and school subject, thereby elaborating the subjective and disciplinary character of curriculum studies. After examining scholarship on the 'subject,' Pinar critiques its absence in the new sociology of curriculum, its historically shifting presence in North European (and specifically German) conceptions of Bildung, in Pinar's concept of currere, in Frantz Fanon's theorizing of decolonization, and as the subject becomes reconstructed in the intercultural scholarship of Hongyu Wang and in Maxine Greene's theorization of art as experience. Of interest to scholars not only in the US, this book will hold special significance for graduate students and junior scholars who want to know how to conduct curriculum research and development in a field informed by scholarship and theory in the humanities.
