Join us at the 2017 Curriculum Camp
Friday, February 10, 2017 - Saturday, February 11, 2017
LSU Curriculum Camp is an annual international conference for graduate students, organized and hosted by LSU students enrolled in the Curriculum Theory Project. Led under the guidance of CTP co-directors Dr. Petra Munro Hendry and Dr. Roland Mitchell, the conference allows a diverse group of graduate students to present their research and network with peers and leaders in the curriculum theory field.
LSU Curriculum Camp is designed to showcase the work of graduate students engaged in research on a host of subjects, such as curriculum theory, gender, race, culture, higher education research (K-20), policy analysis, political and/or intellectual thought (including but not limited to narrative, feminisms, postmodernism, poststructuralism, queer theory, chaos and complexity theory).
This year, we are excited to welcome Dr. Cynthia B. Dillard as the 2017 Curriculum Camp Fireside Chat Speaker! Friday, Dr. Dillard will be holding a mentoring session titled "On Purpose for a Purpose: (Re)membering Spirit in Mentoring" and Saturday evening, she will lead the Fireside Chat titled "To Ghana with Love: (Re)membering Blackness in Teacher Education". Dr. Dillard holds a PhD in Multicultural Education and Educational Leadership from Washington State University, where she also obtained an M.S.Ed. in Vocational Technical Education. She was named the first Mary Frances Early Professor of Teacher Education at the University of Georgia (UGA) and started teaching at UGA from 2012 till now.
Every year, CTP invites a distinguished scholar who has contributed greatly to curriculum theory in academia or in practice. Since the first curriculum camp in 1995, more than 20 curriculum scholars have spoken at Curriculum Camp as fireside speakers, including Dr. Nel Noddings, Dr. William Pinar, Dr. Janet Miller, Dr. Cameron McCarthy, Dr. Greg Dimitriadis, Dr. Hongyu Wang, Dr. Gert Biesta, Dr. Elaine Richardson, Dr. Alecia Youngblood Jackson, and more.
