This book responds to a need in multicultural education curriculum studies to add to the literature in a critical manner and to provide scholars and educators a more nuanced analysis. It offers better strategies to achieve a just curriculum theory, to educate a more just and democratic society. The book positions curriculum theory as a way for creating societies that strive to establish social and cognitive justice.The contributors argue that to deny the existence of any epistemological form beyond the Western mode can be a form of social fascism, which leads to an uncritical reading of history. Together, the essays offer and encourage a more deliberative, democratic engagement that seeks to contextualize and bring to life diverse epistemologies, value-sets, disciplines, theories, concepts, and experiences in education and beyond."show more
