Curriculum Journal Editors’ Choice Award 2022
The annual Curriculum Journal Editors’ Choice Award, which recognizes the best paper published in the journal in 2022, has been awarded to:
· Goh, D. (2022). Rethinking textbooks as active social agents in interpretivist research. Curriculum Journal, 33(4), 602–617. https://doi.org/10.1002/curj.162
The editors commented: ‘It is a paper which sheds new or different light on how textbooks may be viewed in curriculum research, namely “as interactive subjects in the social world rather than simply as content carriers”; it further exemplifies, through two interpretivist research methodologies (symbolic interactionism and autoethnography), how “rethinking textbooks as active social agents in human life instead of repositories of information and ideologies” opens up possibilities of researching them, including how textbooks themselves may shape research.’
Daeyoung is supervised by Dr. Wayne Ross and his committee members are Dr. Sandra Mathison (ECPS) and Dr. William Pinar.
Congratulations Daeyoung and commendation to Dr. Ross and the supervisory committee for mentoring him.
Dr. Samson Nashon, EdD
