Curriculum Theory Project | LSU School of Education

Curriculum Theory Project

The Curriculum Theory Project is comprised of internationally recognized scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds whose primary goals are to research the role education plays in a democratic society and participate in the future of curriculum theory nationally and internationally.  Curriculum Theory aspires to understand educational practices within broad social and cultural frameworks, focusing on what counts as knowledge, and what knowledge is most valued, by whom, at what time, and for what purpose. 



Greetings from Louisiana! The trans-Atlantic cultural currents that have shaped the spirit of Louisiana thrive on improvisation, the carnivalesque, and ongoing creolization. The Curriculum Theory Project, founded at LSU in 1995 by William F. Pinar and William Doll, takes up this spirit by recognizing education as a complex endeavor which requires rigorous study, interdisciplinary, and a cosmopolitan vision.  We are always, already engaging in the complicated conversation that is curriculum. Please join us and feel free to contact us if you any questions.
