The Postmodern Curriculum: Making Space for Historically and Politically Situated Understandings
Pacini-Ketchabaw, Veronica; Pence, Alan
Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, v36 n1 p4-8 Mar 2011
By engaging poststructural, postmodern and indigenous lenses, this article explores challenges associated with recently developed "postmodern" early childhood education curricula. The authors propose that curricula should not be seen as neutral, but rather as historically and politically situated documents that require dynamic and critical engagements from educators. We situate our analysis within Canada.
