Dr. William Pinar to Host Fireside Chat


The LSU College of Human Sciences & Education is pleased to welcome Dr. William Pinar, co-founder of the School of Education’s Curriculum Theory Project and Curriculum Camp, back to LSU for a fireside chat at the 2016 Curriculum Camp.

Pinar will speak at the Barnes & Noble Multipurpose Room at 6 p.m. on Saturday, February 20. The chat is open to the public.

Pinar, internationally regarded as groundbreaking researcher and curriculum theorist, will contextualize study in an era in which the notion of “end-time” seems scientifically and spiritually resonant.

In his chat titled “Study: Concerning Relationship in Educational Experience,” Pinar will discuss the concepts of collaboration, cooperation and relationship and their roles in enabling subjective and social reconstruction.

Dr. Pinar served as the St. Bernard Parish Alumni Endowed Professor at LSU and is currently a professor at the University of British Columbia. Pinar holds a PhD from Ohio State University and continually makes contributions to the field of curriculum theory.  His scholarly contributions include publications such as What is Curriculum Theory? and Educational Experience as Lived: Knowledge, History and Alterity.

We welcome you to join us for a lively and thought-provoking conversation in the field of curriculum theory.
