A bridge between Chinese and North American curriculum studies

William F. Pinar

Abstract


In this paper, the Presidential Address given to the first triennial meeting of the International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (IAACS) held at East China Normal University in Shanghai, China, William Pinar details certain resonances between the Chinese curriculum studies tradition and the work of the legendary Canadian curriculum theorist Ted Aoki. In so doing, Pinar hopes to contribute to the creation of “dialogue between Chinese curriculum wisdom and Western curriculum theories,” to help “form a dynamic relationship between the two” (Zhong and Zhang 2003, p. 260).
