About this item

In this work of curriculum theory, Douglas McKnight addresses and explores the intersections between the sociological theories and history of place (with specific discussion of Kincheloe’s and Pinar’s conceptualization of place and identity and Pierre Bourdieu’s sociological concepts of habitus, misrecognition and cultural capital), and race (identity formation, critical race theory). To that end, he employs a form of narrative construction calledcurriculum vitae (course of life)—a method of locating and delineating identity formation which addresses how theories of place, race and identity formation play out in a particular concrete life. Significant in this narrative is how the discourse of whiteness and place continues to express itself even within the subject position of a curriculum theorist teaching in a large Deep South university. The book concludes with an elaboration of the necessary anti-racist theoretical position within education necessary to work through a heavy racialized inheritance.
