On Wholeness and Devotion
The authors use the regressive step of currere to explore conceptions of wholeness and devotion. Dawe’s autobiographical narratives investigate the queer search for wholeness, its relationship to acts of separation, and their connection to understanding education as experience and experience as education. Through the lens of transness, these regressive vignettes attempt to analyze wholeness through experiences of amputation, separation, and isolation. Parker’s devotions are based on an understanding of devotion as an intense and deep commitment or love that is expressed through action and ongoing practices. These autobiographical devotions, taken separately and together, gesture toward a tentative understanding of what devotion in curriculum might look like by exploring facts, words, and imagination.
