Amnesiac Bodies of Curricula

Dialogues on Indigeneity, Refusal, and Being

  • Boni Wozolek Loyola University Maryland


This paper engages in a significant dialogue with Dr. Ligia Lopez Lopez regarding her book The Making of Indigeniety, Curriculum History, and the Limits of Diversity. Thinking through questions of identity, historical amnesia, and linguistic possibilities, this paper thinks with Lopez about the possibilities and challenges of qualitative research aimed at disrupting the normalized violence that is nested within educational research as it explores indigenous ways of being, knowing, and doing.
