  • Journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (JAAACS)

    The Journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (JAAACS) is the official publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (AAACS), the U.S. affiliate of the International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies (IAACS). In collaboration with other local IAACS affiliates, AAACS seeks to provide support for scholarly conversations within and across national and regional borders regarding the content, context, and process of education, the organizational and intellectual center of which is the curriculum.

    The aim of this journal is to publish critical essays that theoretically and historically contextualize new and existing scholarship, interweaving past and present ideas and perspectives in the field, and exploring their relations to culture and society. As a national affiliate of an international organization, we view this aim as two-fold:

    • We seek to interrogate and expand the traditional boundaries of the North American curriculum studies field through the ongoing consideration and inclusion of recent and historical work that can be seen to serve the greater purposes of our field.

    • We seek to explore international literatures that promise to inform and enrich our work within the North American field and to lead to deeper conversations and collaborations with our international colleagues.

    Information on the current editoral team can be found here.
