Subject and Curriculum in Chile: A Historical Political Perspective
Redon, Silvia; Angulo Rasco, J. Félix
Curriculum Journal, v26 n4 p534-552 2015
In this article, addressing the curriculum will involve analysing and discussing the configuration of a subject, who has developed himself or herself within a historical-political context, in which a dominant culture has reproduced itself through the official curriculum. Bearing in mind such a framework, the text will follow the journey of this subject through the Latin American continent, specifically through the history of Chilean education. The aim is to understand the situated curriculum as a cultural field of power forces reproducing a subject with an "ideal" education, which has been invented by a dominant power since the "conquest of America," the ideals of the "Modern Nation State," and was finally captured by "neoliberalism" and "commodification of education."
