2022 JCT Bergamo Conference CFP

Dear Friends of the Bergamo Conference and JCT,

The Journal of Curriculum Theorizing will host its 42nd annual conference gathering at Bergamo on October 13-15, 2022. We are hosting an in-person meeting and are looking forward to connecting with those who can come and are committed to creating a safe, dynamic, and strong conference experience. 

We intend to open the portal for submissions by April 25, 2022 through August 5, 2022. Our theme this year is “Living in the Shadows of Freedom.”

For this conference, we ask you to consider how scholar practitioners in the curriculum field understand, know, want, create, mistake, and treasure “freedom” in education, politics, religion, economy, health, sexuality, etc. from many perspectives? We aren’t hoping to solve the dilemma or eliminate the shadow of nuance of the concept of freedom in our own lives and experience, but to reveal and understand it more completely as we live through its contours and shadows. In short, how do we become more free?

We ask you to consider where scholars in the curriculum field see, feel, understand, know, want, create, mistake, and treasure “light” in the work and its manifestations in the world, in educational settings and others, where so much of our day-to-day existences are at stake. We invite participants to enter into complicated conversations with/for us about the presence or not, the intensity or not, the importance or not of “light” and/or “luminosity” in the curriculum field. How do curriculum theory and practice light the way or not?
