Curriculum : Decanonizing the Field, Hardback Book

Curriculum : Decanonizing the Field Hardback

Edited by Joao M. Paraskeva, Shirley R. Steinberg

Part of the Counterpoints series


Curriculum: Decanonizing the Field is a fresh and innovative collection that is concerned with the totalitarian Western Eurocentric cult that has dominated the field of curriculum studies.

Contributors to this volume challenge dominant and counter-dominant curriculum positions of the Western Eurocentric epistemic platform.

At a time when the field laudably claims internationalization as a must, arguments presented in this volume prove that this "internationalization" is nothing more than the new Western expansionism, one that dominates all other cultures, economies and knowledges.

Curriculum: Decanonizing the Field is a clarion call against curriculum epistemicides, proposing the use of Itinerant Curriculum Theory (ICT), which opens up the canon of knowledge; challenges and destroys the coloniality of power, knowledge and being; and transforms the very idea and practice of power.

The volume is essential reading for anyone involved in one of the most important battles for curriculum relevance - the fact that there is no social justice without cognitive justice.
