Education | Contemporary Curriculum Theorizing
J664 | TBA | Goodman, J

Do you enjoy exploring the educational implications that emer­ge from
examining questions such as: what does it mean to be a human being,
what are the characteristics of the “good” society, in what ways do
human beings construct their identities, what is knowl­edge and how
is it created, and what is the purpose of scholarship and its
relationship to educating children? If so, you might be interested
in taking the above seminar.

Using a variety of contemporary intellectual frameworks in the field
of Curriculum Studies (e.g., positivism, existentialism, neo-
Marxism, post-modernism, critical race theory, fem­inism, pragmatism)
as a catalyst for our own thinking, the purpose of this seminar is
to develop our talents for educational and social theorizing.
Special attention is paid to the challenges of creating a conceptual
frame­work in the study of educational phenomena.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to con­tact the
