The Interdisciplinary Centre for Research in Curriculum as a Social Practice is a strong community-university network that supports collaborative scholarship on unique and complex curricular issues to inform public policy and pedagogy in the 21st century.

Events for academic year 2022-2023 


The 2023 series, presented by York University’s Disrupting Early Childhood Series and Western University’s
Interdisciplinary Centre for Research in Curriculum, 
creates a public space that will highlight the generative intersections between emergent scholars’ research and that of their doctoral advisors. The series is particularly interested in the generative intersections created between professors and emergent scholars. Its guiding questions include:  What is unique to the relation between emerging scholars and their supervisors?  How do such vibrant intellectual intersections of research and thought enable different engagements with/in the world?  What forms of care do these intersections give to thinking and to the possibility for otherwise or alternate ways of thinking?  What kinds of possibilities for reconfiguring and perhaps even rupturing dominant structures of interpretation might be cultivated at this intersection, and how ought we to talk about them?
