Description

In the 1950s and 1960s school teaching became a university-based profession, and scholars and policy leaders looked to the humanities and social sciences in building an appropriate knowledge base. By the mid-1960s there was talk about a "new" philosophy, history, and sociology of education. Curriculum thinkers such as Joseph Schwab, Dwayne Heubner and Paul Hirst initiated new intellectual projects to supplement applied work in curriculum. By the 1970s the field was in the process of re-conceptualization, as a new generation of scholars provided deep critical insights into the social, political and cultural dynamics of school experience and templates for renewal of curriculum research and practice. In this book, 18 leading curriculum scholars since 1970 who remain influential today present the fascinating stories of their lives and important new contributions to the field. They trace their early experiences in teaching and curriculum development, creative directions in their work, mature ideas and perceptions of future directions for the field. Each chapter contains a list of works chosen by the authors as their personal favorites. This book offers an ideal companion to courses in curriculum studies and a guide for scholars seeking to understand the main currents in this field today. In a single volume it presents a bird's eye view of the entire field as told in the words of its leading figures. "This collection casts a bright light on the identity of the field of curriculum studies and its evolution. The essays make for wonderfully accessible and engaging reading. They are even more impressive in the fluency with which the authors use their individual histories to illuminate the field. We in the next cohort might take a page from their experiences, ideas, accomplishments, and sometimes explicit advice." From the Foreword by Reba Page
