Save the Date for 2019 Curriculum Camp
Friday, February 22, 2019 - Saturday, February 23, 2019
Baton Rouge, LA - 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. Jackie Bach 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.
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).
The 2019 guest speaker will be Dr. Denise Taliaferro Baszile. Dr. Taliaferro Baszile holds a PhD from Louisiana State University. Her research focuses on understanding curriculum as racial/gendered text with an emphasis on disrupting traditional modes of knowledge production, validation and representation. Dr. Taliaferro Baszile is also the Associate Dean of Diversity and Student Experience for the College of Education, Health, and Society.
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.
