Join the CICCS SIG!
Purpose: To support and promote transdisciplinary research of education as experience. The SIG de-stabilizes commonly held boundaries of educational research beyond contemporary curriculum discourses. Members pursue curriculum inquiry using critical perspectives, and performative, auto-ethnographic and conceptual approaches to ask sociocultural, political, and theoretical questions.
