COSMOPOLITAN CURRICULUM CONCEPTS
The International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (IAACS) holds conferences globally, and the field, as William Pinar (2003a) notes, is now worldwide (p. 1). For students who are interested in the worldwideness—if you will—of curriculum studies, consult William Pinar’s (2003a) International Handbook of Curriculum Research. This is the first book in the field that deals with curriculum studies on a worldwide scale. Pinar explains,
This is, I believe, the first international handbook of curriculum studies. As such, it represents the first move in postulating an architecture of a worldwide field of curriculum studies. By worldwide, I do not mean uniform. As I have noted on another occasion, at this stage of formulation, curriculum studies tends to be embedded in their national and regional settings, often stipulated by national educational policies and/or reaction to them.
