Aims and Scope: Curriculum Inquiry (CI) is a leading international journal in the field of curriculum studies. It is dedicated to studies of educational experience in schools, communities, families, and other local or transnational settings, using a range of theoretical and disciplinary approaches. CI brings together the work of both established and emerging scholars from a variety of academic fields and disciplines who theorize and examine curriculum and pedagogy, broadly defined, and whose work promotes conceptual debate and pushes beyond current understandings of educational research, theory, and practice. The journal publishes papers that explore and critique contemporary ideas, issues, trends, and problems in education, particularly those relating to curriculum, teaching and learning, teacher education, cultural practice, and educational research and policy. Each issue of the journal also includes a provocative and critically analytical editorial essay that highlights the contributions of featured authors.
