The Curriculum

Whose Internationalization?

Edited By João M. Paraskeva

The Curriculum: Whose Internationalization? asks a series of important questions in the re-examination of the internationalization of curriculum studies. It reflects the work of the Internationalization of Curriculum Studies Task Force – created at the American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies annual meeting in New Orleans in 2011 – in the context of new theoretical avenues such as the Itinerant Curriculum Theory (ICT) to help address issues related to the problematic nature of internationalization and globalization.

“The book in your hands signals the birth of Post-Epistemicidal Curriculum Studies. As powerfully demonstrated here, the Internationalization of Curriculum Studies Task Force of the American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies boldly grounds the feld in a critical creolization. The collective accomplishment establishes curriculum studies as an ethical stance upon the world—at once trans-national, post-cultural, and alter-global, while committed to recognition and countering dispossession.”

—PETER APPELBAUM, DIRECTOR OF DISCIPLINARY AND TRANSDISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS, ARCADIA UNIVERSITY; PRESIDENT, THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF CURRICULUM STUDIES

“Radical in its conceptions and the new directions suggested for curriculum studies, João M. Paraskeva and the [Internationalization of Curriculum Studies] Task Force have begun to reorganize the feld in a way that recognizes decolonizing knowledges and traditions as fundamental in approaching the curriculum question: what knowledges are of most worth? Recognizing the colonial relation as the fundamental historical event shaping knowledge production, Paraskeva frames the task force’s initial efforts here as a necessary decolonizing move that reaches backwards historically to renew the feld.”
