The Pervert’s Guide to Being a Curriculum Theorist

Antonio Garcia


Reconceptualist curriculum has provided a field of study that intersects with the humanities. As a young scholar, I question my place in curriculum theory using Gilles Deleuze and Slavoj Zizek as two key entry points to ground departures (or lines of flight) and destinations. The seminal question challenges what boundaries and limitations exist for a young scholar seeking to be a pervert theorist, and if perverts are even wanted (or a part of) reconceptualist curriculum.

JCT: Journal of Curriculum Theorizing is an interdisciplinary journal of curriculum studies. It offers an academic forum for scholarly discussions of curriculum. Historically aligned with the "reconceptualist" movement in curriculum theorizing and oriented toward informing and affecting classroom practice, JCT presents compelling pieces within forms that challenge disciplinary, genre, and textual boundaries.

The journal is published by the Foundation for Curriculum Theory and is associated with the Bergamo Conference on Curriculum Theory and Classroom Practice, held in the autumn of each year. JCT is indexed in The Education Index.
