Summary

Bringing together Carl Leggo’s most significant contributions over the past 30 years, this book celebrates his work in curriculum studies, English language arts, literacy and life writing, poetry, and arts education. Organized around three thematic sections—Loving Language, Narrating Ruminations, and Storying the World—the volume highlights his efforts across interrelated fields of inquiry, including narrative and poetic inquiry, contemplative inquiry, and social fiction. The text extends the discussion and conversation of curriculum studies and is greatly enhanced with a selection of original poetic interludes by this incomparable poet, scholar, and teacher. Carl Leggo is renowned not only for his ground-breaking work at The University of British Colombia, but also for his tremendous influence on graduate education across the English-speaking world. This volume honours that immense contribution in today’s time of academic change and development.
