Curriculum in the Postmodern Condition explores key trends and challenges impacting on curriculum under postmodern conditions. New ways of thinking about knowledge, rapidly changing technological arrangements, and shifting patterns of participation in work and civic life have thrown the theory and practice of curriculum into turmoil. The authors tackle these matters head on, by reference to pressing themes such as enterprise culture, cultural contact, postmodern science, glocalization, technological change and the university curriculum, postmodern constructions of literacy, the professionalization of environmental educators, and critical literacy and new technologies.
