While the Encyclopedia treats curriculum as definitely central to schooling, it also shows how curriculum scholars work on myriad other institutionalized and non-institutionalized dimensions of life that shape the ways humans learn to perceive, conceptualize, and act in the world. Thus, while the Encyclopedia considers common "curriculum" categories, it does so through a critical eye that provides counter-narratives to neoliberal, colonial, and imperial forces that have too often dominated curriculum thought, policy, and practice. To provide such perspectives, articles draw upon diverse scholarly traditions in addition to established qualitative and quantitative approaches. Moreover, such orientations - often drawn from neglected work from Asia, the Global South, Aboriginal regions, and other often excluded realms - reveal positions that counter official or dominant neoliberal impositions by emphasizing hidden, null, outside, material, embodied, lived, and transgressive curricula that foster emancipatory, ecologically interdependent, and continuously growing constructs.
