Curriculum Studies in India examines Indian scholars in dialogue regarding their intellectual life histories and subjective investments in their field. With chapter introductions by William Pinar, scholars explore their intellectual history and present circumstances of curriculum studies in India, emphasized by their own engagement and research. These works demonstrate the rapidity and scale of economic growth today, and how it creates conflict, dislocation, inequality, and "echoes" of a colonial past now present in globalization. Pinar and his contributors conclude that historical (dis)continuities, cultural conflict, economic globalization, and political tension characterize the present circumstances of curriculum studies in India.

This book explores Hui (one of the Muslim minority groups in China) students' lived experiences in an elementary school in central P. R. China from the perspectives of philosophical foundations of education and the sociology of education, the impact of their experiences on their identity construction, and what schooling means to Hui students. The book describes a vivid picture of how the Hui construct their own identities in the public school setting, and how the state curricula, teachers, and parents play roles in student identity construction. The objectives of the book are to discover factors that impact Hui students' identity construction and have caused Hui students to know little about their own culture and language; and to explore what should be done to help teachers, administrators, and policy makers appreciate minority culture and include minority culture and knowledge in school curriculum in order to meet the needs of Hui students. The book provides historical, policy, and curricular contexts for readers to understand Hui students' experiences in central China, and discusses the cultural differences between Han and Hui from a philosophical level. The book uses postcolonial theory to critique the assimilative nature of school education, the construction of Hui students' identity from Han ideology, and the cultural hegemony of the mainstream Han group. It also discusses curriculum reconceptualization both in China and globally, and the possibility of multicultural education in China.
