Faculty Awarded the 2017 AERA CICCS SIG Early Career Award

Dr. Seungho Moon was awarded the Early Career Award for the Special Interest Group (SIG): Critical Issues in Curriculum and Cultural Studies (CICCS) at the 2017 American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting. Annually, CICCS recognizes an emerging scholar who promotes trans-disciplinary research of “education as experience” and thus advances contemporary curriculum discourses. Dr. Moon’s scholarship centers on releasing the social imagination to promote equity and justice in education by interrogating interdisciplinary knowledge. Dr. Moon has used multiple disciplines of Eastern-Western philosophy, cultural studies, theology, and aesthetic theories in order to challenge a monolithic, Eurocentric version of curriculum. In his current research, Dr. Moon theorizes the diverse understandings of important knowledge, cultural sameness/difference, and political frames of curriculum decision-making in both the U.S. and in transnational contexts
