Comber, Barbara – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Lately I have been thinking and writing about the idea of a teacher's oeuvre -- the notion that over time teachers create a significant body or work that might be compared to that of an artist or composer. I have argued that too often the contributions that teachers make remain invisible, under-valued and unknown in the field of education. This is…

To remove cultural bias is critical for the legitimacy of Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) as an internationally reliable academic assessment.

Spector, Hannah – Curriculum Inquiry, 2018
In US-based educational research, the bureaucratization of education has been interpreted primarily from economic points of view. This paper examines bureaucracy and education from a political perspective, which provides key insights into the ways that bureaucracy as a form of governance influences ethical consciousness. As this paper puts forth,…

Baker, Bernadette – Curriculum Inquiry, 2017
The demand for evidence in particular forms shapes contemporary educational policy, curriculum studies' debates over the politics of knowledge "versus" wisdom, and research into classroom practice. This paper provides a genealogical trace that examines the arbitrary and historical linkage of discourses of vision (especially when vision…

Schmeichel, Mardi; Sharma, Ajay; Pittard, Elizabeth – Curriculum Inquiry, 2017
Neoliberalism has an enormous influence on P-12 education in most industrial societies. In this integrative, theoretical literature review, we surveyed the journal articles on neoliberalism in US-based educational research to better understand how neoliberalism has been conceptualized in this body of work and to offer implications for future…

de Oliveira, Thiago Ranniery Moreira; Lopes, Danielle Bastos – Curriculum Inquiry, 2016
Humanism and the concept of the human that informs pedagogical discourse have been increasingly questioned by what has been called "post-human times." In this paper, we situate Paulo Freire's (1970) "Pedagogy of the Oppressed," and Nathan Snaza and John Weaver's (2014) "Posthumanism and Educational Research" within…

Lawrence, Ann M. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
In this article, I review influential contributions made by writing-studies researchers to the research literature on literacy sponsorship. Through this review, I show how subsequent studies have reiterated three basic assumptions of Deborah Brandt's pioneering oral-history project. However, I also demonstrate that later writing-studies research…

de Freitas, Elizabeth; Curinga, Matthew X. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
Emphasis on discourse and language-use has fueled the study of identity in education over the last few decades. This paper argues that these approaches fail to fully account for the complex materiality of life, and should be supplemented by new materialist tools for studying language "as material". This new materialist approach considers…

Farley, Lisa – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
In this paper, I theorize fantasies of idealization at work in narratives of educational research. I take as an example one of the very first psychoanalytically oriented studies in the field: Marion Milner's, "The Human Problem in Schools," published in 1938. Evidence is drawn from Milner's published book as well as from the historical…

Britzman, Deborah P. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
With the question of what is between psychoanalysis and pedagogy, this essay presents a psychoanalytic frame for thinking about the study of uncertainty in teaching and learning from the vantage of the education of the author and her notion of "difficult knowledge." I review my body of research through these dilemmas to picture a theory of…

Burdick, Jake; Sandlin, Jennifer A. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2013
In a 2009 American Educational Research Association session on the topic of public pedagogy, Bill Ayers, serving as the session's discussant, posed the problem of public pedagogy being so broadly conceptualized in the literature base that it might actually become meaningless. Ayers's concern centered on the slippery, ever-proliferating meanings of…

Springgay, Stephanie – Curriculum Inquiry, 2011
Thinking through affective theories by Alfred North Whitehead, Giles Deleuze, and Brian Massumi, this paper proposes an understanding of pedagogy that is sensational. To consider affective theories and their implications for educational research, I engage with a relational artwork, "The Chinatown Foray," by Toronto-based artist Diane…

Luke, Allan – Curriculum Inquiry, 2010
Jean Anyon's (1981) "Social Class and School Knowledge" was a landmark work in North American educational research. It provided a richly detailed qualitative description of differential, social class-based constructions of knowledge and epistemological stance. This essay situates Anyon's work in two parallel traditions of critical educational…

Cook-Sather, Alison – Curriculum Inquiry, 2006
Every way of thinking is both premised on and generative of a way of naming that reflects particular underlying convictions. Over the last 15 years, a way of thinking has reemerged that strives to reposition students in educational research and reform. Best documented in Australia, Canada, England, and the United States, this way of thinking is…
