Audiovisual Compositions and Curriculum Studies: Lines of Freedom

Tuesday 7 February
Room 203, St Alphege, King Alfred Campus, University of Winchester, Sparkford Road, Winchester, Hampshire SO22 4NR

​This presentation brings together some of the themes we have been working with in our research projects. They have in common the analysis of school curriculum practices that are theoretically related to concepts presented in the French philosophy of Giles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. While describing different art exhibits carried out in the specific context of kindergarten and of pre-service teacher education undergraduate course, within a qualitative approach, we have established a discussion on curriculum fragmentation and on the movement and flows that go behind the (non) representation of images and sounds in curricular productions and their artefacts. According to this plane of composition, our argumentation will be constructed through the establishment of relationships between the curriculum and the concept of freedom.
