Letter to Members (2019)

HAPPY NEW 2020!

Dear Colleagues,

At this season, last year, we were together in Australia for our wonderful Conference presided by our estimate colleague Bill Green. As stated in the report prepared by the organizing committee and posted on our page, the conference was a success, with 242 participants from 32 countries. For all of us who were there, lots of memories of complicated conversations around curriculum studies and many other subjects. Since then, throughout this year of 2019, there have been many national meetings we have attended, including those held by IAACS-linked national and transnational (such as the European) organizations. On all these occasions, we celebrate the fact that we have associated ourselves, at the turn of the century, to support a worldwide Continue reading

With Great Sadness

Doll, William E., Jr. (Bill)

Dear Colleagues,

I write with very sad news: our valued colleague and friend, Bill Doll, has passed away. I send Donna (Trueit), in the name of IAACS (and in my personal name), our solidarity and love.

In a piece in honor of his mentor, in 2009, Bill Doll wrote: “with his passing went part of my soul. (…) He was a teacher who helped me shape my views not only in education, but also on life”. Those of us who had the privilege of knowing Bill Doll as well as those who never had the honor of meeting him in person — all in the worldwide curriculum studies field recognize the many ways in which Bill served as mentor. His crucial contributions to the field include his distinctive voice and infectious laughter, his influential books and essays, and his support of and constant participation in myriad curriculum studies conferences and journals.
