Curriculum for Cohesion contributes to British Educational Research Association Conference 2014

By Dr. Matthew Wilkinson

24 September 2014. Dr. Matthew Wilkinson presented a paper entitled ‘The Concept of Absent Curriculum: the Case of the Muslim Contribution and the English National Curriculum for History’ at the British Educational Research Association (BERA) Conference 2014 at the Institute of Education, University of London.

Therefore, it was an ideal vehicle for us to present the original concept of the absent curriculum and to demonstrate, with reference to the case of British Muslim boys, how the absence of the historical Muslim contribution from places where it can naturally be included in the curriculum and in the classroom can fatally undermine Muslim engagement with school history and Muslim engagement with the historical community of the nation.
