About This Book

The volume provides crucial approaches from leading educators, curriculum theorists, and pedagogues since the emergence of curriculum as a field of studies. It underlines the wrangles within and beyond hegemonic and counter-hegemonic curriculum inquiry exploring the advances, accomplishments, and frustrations of a particular radical critical river of intellectuals—what Paraskeva calls the "generation of utopia"—in the struggle for a just society.

"Thanks to a keenly discerning eye, Paraskeva has crafted an essential tool for stepping back and taking epistemological stock of the course the field has taken and the directions in which it is now being steered."— Cathryn Teasley, University of A Coruña, Spain

"'Under one roof' Paraskeva captures the writings, ruminations, and reflections of germinal authors from what I characterize as the 'porous' field of curriculum studies."— Todd, Price National Louis University, USA

"Paraskeva strikes again and provides key foundational documents in a volume that should be examined by all educators committed to social and cognitive justice."— James Jupp, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, USA

"Paraskeva's reader is imperative to those unhappy with the current state of the field and who want to know how curriculum theorizing relates to other areas of thinking."— Fatma M?z?kac?, Ankara University, Turkey

"João Paraskeva's edited book offers a wonderfully comprehensive examination of the leading and common means of theorizing knowledge in educational thought."— Anthony Brown, University of Texas, Austin, USA

"Paraskeva's volume provides a powerful understanding of the struggles between hegemonic perspectives and a dispersed counter-hegemonic radical critical river—as he insightfully labeled 'a generation of utopia'—a river of hope and possibility."— Maria Nikolakaki, University of Peloponnese, Greece
