Re-Queering Queer Youth Development: A Post-Developmental Approach to Childhood and Pedagogy
Janssen, Diederik
Journal of LGBT Youth, v5 n3 p74-95 Jul 2008
Contemporary reflection on queer-radical and queer-deconstructionist curricula has only marginally included a radical deconstruction of the principle of curricula itself. This article explores this "hidden discourse" by referencing the idea of curricular subjectivity and proposes a contextualizing perspective on the politicized interplay between psychogenetic ("developmental") and socio-genetic (historical) notions of the "queer." Taking the notion of the child as a proto-queer, it offers a queer ramification of maturity and its politicized calculus. (Contains 4 notes.)
