Currere, Subjective Reconstruction and Autobiographical Theory

  • Wanying Wang The University of British Columbia
Keywords: curriclum theory, subjectivity


This research articulates my life as an international student grappling with my own life history, my present preoccupations, my dreams of future, both continuous and unprecedented. The complex roles of institutional structures, political and policy agendas, teaching protocols and educational theories are threaded through the subjective experience of the individual personal-myself, as articulated autobiographically. The study provides understandings of subjectivity from both West and East perspectives as well of the method of currere to articulate the issues I face as student, teacher, woman, and Chinese in Canada. It provides an example of how I use currere to acquire a deeper understanding of self.
