Where Innovative Curriculum Scholarship is Cultivated

New Leadership Team

Thank you to all who have helped us with the leadership team transition for the Bergamo Conference and the Journal of Curriculum Theorizing. Special thanks to Rob Helfenbein and Gabe Huddleston who have worked hard to make this a seamless process. We also want to thank YOU for being patient as we get the new leadership team in place (see member names below).

Looking forward, we are happy to announce that our Annual Conference at Bergamo will be October 10-12, 2019, in Dayton, Ohio. Please hold the dates and plan to join us for the meeting. More details about the conference theme will follow in the late spring Call for Proposals announcement.

In the meantime, very soon we will be accepting manuscripts for Journal of Curriculum Theorizing through the online portal at http://journal.jctonline.org/index.php/jct

The good people who have agreed to serve as editors for the journal are also listed below.

Again, I am grateful to all as we transition, and looking forward to carrying on this great work with the new team,

Tom Poetter

JCT Graduate Student Paper Award

This award will be presented to one graduate student in recognition of an outstanding paper presented at the 2018 Annual Bergamo Conference on Curriculum Theory and Classroom Practice. This award recognizes the innovative scholarship of one student whose work expands on this year’s conference theme of What is to be Done? On Curriculum Theory and a Critique of the Present by situating the present moment in curriculum studies within the context of the broader field of education—and beyond. The award encourages the participation of emerging scholars in promoting new ideas and welcomes all viewpoints in forming more transformative and reflective curriculum, theory, and practice.

Procedure: Interested graduate students should have already submitted a proposal to the conference. Proposals must be accepted for presentation at the 2018 Bergamo Conference on Curriculum Theory and Classroom Practice. The completed paper must be submitted by 5 p.m. EST on Monday, October 29, 2018 via email to Isabel Nuñez at: nunezi@pfw.edu.

Submissions must be single-authored by the graduate student and may not exceed more than 20 pages (excluding references, tables, appendices). Names and university affiliation should appear only on a separate document for blind review. Papers must be in APA style. If no paper is identified that meets the criteria of the award, no awards will be given for this year.

Award: Publication in a future issue of the Journal of Curriculum Theorizing and recognition at the conference. Details regarding the specific issue of publication will be determined by the author of the winning paper and the editors of the Journal of Curriculum Theorizing.
