EuroACS invites you to submit a paper to the 4th EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON CURRICULUM STUDIES

EuroACS invites you to submit a paper to the



in Maynooth University, Ireland on 7th and 8th of June 2019.

The 2019 EuroACS conference in Ireland comes at a time when curriculum studies as a field is arguably burgeoning, fuelled by  the proliferation of new discourses and practices about and around curriculum. This is evident, for example,  at a supra-level through the publications of transnational organisations such as the EU, UNESCO and OECD; at a macro level through the ongoing emergence of new forms of curriculum policy addressing such transnational and local forces; and at meso/micro levels as teachers and other practitioners are increasingly expected to become engaged as professional curriculum makers, rather than as technicians delivering policy products. In short, conversations about curriculum are back where they should be – at the heart of educational discourse and practice.
