Curriculum as Playlist: Responses of Synopsis and Expansion
Wiebe, Sean
Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, v15 n1 p58-105 2018
Do you remember boom-boxes with two decks so a personalized playlist could be recorded onto a cassette tape? Perhaps you received a playlist from a friend, family member, or lover? In this project, 14 colleagues first compiled and shared their curriculum playlists--their favorite texts/performances about curriculum including some of their own texts/performances. Then, they composed responses, expressed in music, dance, poetry, narrative, ruminations, and drama, that annotate, trouble, riff on, and respond to one another's playlists in order to investigate how the art of (re)mixing offers metaphorical possibilities for artfully making curriculum ("poiesis"). How might the art of mixing be a way of mediating understandings of scholarly lives contingent on histories, politics, and psychologies of knowledge? Writings in this article include: (1) Playing with Dr. Seuss and Walt Whitman: The poet's hope (Carl Leggo); (2) If story, then care (Sean Wiebe); (3) Strong like two people (Diane Conrad); (4) Tracing love in parallax (Pauline Sameshima); (5) If I only thought like Elliot (Peter Gouzouasis); (6) Tarrying with wastrels (Kedrick James); (7) Being unsettled: Heartful alchemy (Susan Walsh); (8) A rose is a rose is a rose (Lynn Fels); (9) The world/cosmic ambulance (Pamela Richardson); (10) Poetic play/a looking-glass world (Karen Meyer); (11) Curriculum compost (Erika Hasebe-Ludt); (12) Water, stories, and the body (Celeste Snowber); (13) Lost in the play of the playlist (Jeanne Adele Kentel); and (14) Living in the mix (Rebecca Lloyd).
