How can curriculum background be re-envisioned from a feminist, poststructuralist point of view? Engendering Curriculum History disrupts dominant notions of background as linear, as inevitable growth, and as embedded within the person. This dialog calls for a heritage that seeks re-memberance now not illustration, reflexivity not linearity, and responsibility now not fact. Rejecting a compensatory method of rewriting historical past, which leaves dominant ancient different types and periodization intact, Hendry examines how the narrative constructions of curriculum histories are implicated within the development of gendered matters. 5 significant chapters take in a selected discourse (wisdom, the physique, colonization, progressivism and pragmatism) to excavate the topic identities made attainable throughout time and house. Curriculum historical past is known as an emergent, now not a entire, process – as an never-ending discussion that creates areas for dialog during which a number of, conflicting, paradoxical and contradictory interpretations might be generated as a way to stimulate extra questions, no longer grand narratives.
