* Andiron Lecture by Paul Parkison - Should School Curriculum be Cathartic?

Paul Parkison, associate professor and chair of the School of Education, will be the speaker at the Andiron Lecture on October 1. The lecture begins at 4 p.m. in Eykamp 252, Ridgway University Center. A social hour with beverages precedes each lecture at 3:45 p.m. All the Andiron Lectures are free and open to the public.

Parkison completed an EdD in curriculum and instruction from the University of Memphis in 2004. He earned an MA in political science from Vanderbilt University and a BA in history and political science at Wabash College. Prior to working at UE, Parkison was chair of the Department of Teacher Education at the University of Southern Indiana. He served as a social studies teacher at the middle school and secondary levels for 11 years prior to his time at USI.

His primary research interests include education policy analysis and teacher identity formation and maintenance. Formal school curriculum represents a mechanism through which social forces shape the human psyche and could facilitate the catharsis that enables authenticity for each individual. This lecture will examine institutional barriers that present obstacles to a cathartic education. Consideration of the assumed dichotomous and antagonistic relationship between mimesis (lived experience/curriculum) and the potential catharsis offered by the school curriculum exposes fractures in the hegemony of standards, high-stakes testing, and the accountability paradigm and reveals the potential for re-engaging with issues of citizenship and learner-centered curricula.

For further information, call the series coordinator Annette Parks at 812-488-1070 or the William L. Ridgway College, College of Arts and Sciences at 812-488-2589.
