The Curriculum, Social Context, and "Political Correctness."
Beyer, Landon E.
Journal of General Education, v43 n1 p1-31 1994
Addresses the epistemological questions that undergird curriculum debates in higher education over the value and vitality of a canon, a need for intellectual and cultural homogeneity, and the articulation of norms for scholarly inquiry. Challenges general education to communicate the value-ladenness of allegedly objective curricula, events, and texts in a world of socially constructed realities. (MAB)
