About this product
- DescriptionCurriculum: Decanizing the Field is a fresh and invative 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 thing more than the new Western expansionism, one that dominates all other cultures, ecomies and kwledges. Curriculum: Decanizing the Field is a clarion call against curriculum epistemicides, proposing the use of Itinerant Curriculum Theory (ICT), which opens up the can of kwledge; challenges and destroys the coloniality of power, kwledge 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 social justice without cognitive justice.
