Panel Discussion - Works in Progress Series
January 14, 2011 - 12-2pm, in OISE 11-164
Invited paper by Dr Magda Lewis, Queens University
Panelists: Dr Greg Dimitriadis, SUNY Buffalo
Dr Chloë Brushwood-Rose, York University
Dr Lance McCready, OISE
Moderators: Dr Stephanie Springgay
Dr Rubén A. Gaztambide-Fernández
Historically, education has been an important field in the evolution of cultural studies, and
contemporary curriculum studies draw quite heavily from the analytic tools and theoretical
insights of cultural studies. Yet, in recent years the relationship between curriculum and
cultural studies has become at times contentious. While many scholars continue to take up
critical issue in cultural and curriculum studies, some curriculum scholars shun cultural studies
as increasingly irrelevant, while some cultural studies scholars reject curriculum scholars
as overly concerned with schooling and the practical needs of teachers. The purpose of this
panel is to have an open discussion about the critical links between cultural and curriculum
studies and the range of possibilities that working the tensions and overlaps between the two
might open. The three panelists will share how their own work draws from and contributes to
both cultural and curriculum studies. The discussion will draw from a paper by OISE alumna
Magda Lewis, in which she considers some of the contemporary pressures that have drawn
cultural and curriculum studies further afield in the University. Drawing on this paper and the
three panelists contributions, we hope to generate ideas about how our Centre might further
strengthen the links between the two fields.
A paper draft from Professor Magda Lewis is available and can be accessed here. We encourage
all attendants to download and read the paper before the Friday session.
