Abstract
Within the confines of educational theory and practice, things are becoming, once again, both moribund and panicky, and little is to be done within this fray that won’t simply exhaust attention and devotion. In this talk, I will muse on how curriculum theory needs to step out of this fray, but also turn towards it. This stepping and turning, I suggest, is a radical act and is the reckoning of those entering the orbit of scholarly work.
