“Expanding Curriculum Theory” cover.

Professor Julie Webber from the Department of Politics and Government co-edited a book entitled Expanding Curriculum Theory, Second Edition.

The book, edited with William A. Reynolds and published by Routledge, carries through the major focus of the original volume—to reflect on the influence of Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of “lines of flight” and its application to curriculum theorizing. What is different is that the lines of flight have since shifted and produced expanded understandings of this concept for curriculum theory and for education in general.

This edition reflects the impact of events that have contributed to this shift, in particular the (il)logic of school policy changes and reforms in the past decade, and the continued explosion of social media and its effect on the collective understanding of how both “knowledge” and “education” work as forms of repression.

The book invites exciting scholars from North America and Australia to reflect on contemporary educational politics in the control society.
