Abstract

This plateau introduces the concept of currere as living with/in/through curriculum. The plateau draws on curriculum inquiry research, particularly Pinar (Currere: towards reconceptualistaion. In: Curriculum theorizing: the reconceptualists. McCutchan Publishing Corperation, Berkeley, pp 396–414, 1975; What is curriculum theory? Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Mahwah, NJ, 2004), and Pinar and Grumet (Toward a poor curriculum. Kendall/Hunt, Dubuque, 1976), to chart developments in currere as a method of curriculum autobiography. The plateau includes a partial history of curriculum as currere, currere as a method, and currere in a postmodern era.
