EDCP Graduate Students (EGS) Conference is an annual conference organized by students and for students from the Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy (EDCP) in the Faculty of Education. We also welcome and encourage participation from all other departments within the Faculty of Education. The main purpose of the conference is to showcase the work undertaken by graduate students within the Faculty of Education, in all its diversity of subjects and conceptual approaches to theory and practice. This event is also intended to provide a community space for participants to receive feedback from peers, as well as hands-on practice in preparation for national and international conferences.
This year’s theme is devoted to the tangled relationship between curriculum and pedagogy and the complexities within theoretical and practical contexts. If we personify these two concepts, the relationship can resemble the dynamism, fluidity, and momentum of two people dancing a tango. In the famous vignette in the movie Scent of a Woman (1992), Frank and Donna dance the tango, accompanied by the music Por una Cabeza. The music’s forte and piano melodies propel the entanglement of dancers, who are immersed in the moment of histories, space/place, subjectivities, and sensations.
Inspired by the tango dance, we title this year’s EGS The tangle and/or tango of Curriculum and Pedagogy and we consider the complexities of “curriculum” and “pedagogy” as graduate students working in a department that is marked by the relationship of these two concepts.
Opening the conversations of the day will be a discussion panel composed of EDCP faculty members, addressing the questions: What are scholars in curriculum and pedagogy entangled in?, What are they tangling with in their discipline(s)/field(s) of study?
