We are pleased to announce this invitation for submissions for the upcoming Provoking Curriculum conference. We are honoured to be hosting this conference on Treaty 4 territory, the traditional lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Nakoda, Dakota, Lakota peoples and homeland of the Metis.

While we welcome any and all pieces that address current work in curriculum studies in the form of papers and panels, poetry, arts informed, and performative pieces, we especially invite submissions that speak to the following themes:

  • Performative scholarship
    i.e. – site specific and research-based performances
  • The Pedagogue as activist
    i.e. – walking dialogues, community engagement as scholarship
  • Learning through and with disenfranchised persons/communities
    i.e. – dialogue with knowledge keepers
  • Embodied learning and innovative technologies
    i.e. – studio explorations

Provoking Curriculum is a biannual conference that is a satellite program supported by the Canadian Association of Curriculum Studies, which is part of the Congress of Social Sciences and Humanities and hosted by Canadian Universities. In 2019, Provoking Curriculum will also be so sponsored by the Faculty of Education and the Teaching and Learning Centre at the University of Regina. In the characteristic way of the Provoking Curriculum Studies Conferences, the 9th Biennial Provoking Curriculum Studies Conference will provide opportunities for scholars from many universities and disciplines across the globe to engage in dialogue that will significantly shape the future of curriculum studies. Canadian scholars are the world leaders in curriculum studies informed by arts-based research, narrative inquiry, poetic inquiry, and life writing.
