Who We Are
Who We Are
Profile of Division B Members
We are Division B, a diverse and eclectic group of scholars who raises questions, studies issues, and explores possibilities related to curriculum--the official and unofficial bodies of knowledge taught and learned, or not. We are historians, critical social and cultural theorists, pedagogues, researchers, philosophers, teachers, teacher educators, artists, advocates, activists, thinkers, believers, intellectuals, learners, but above all else, we are curriculum workers--intergenerational, complex, and growing into inclusivity.
