This work examines the impoverished image of life presupposed by the legacy of transcendent and representational thinking that continues to frame the limits of curricular thought. Analyzing the ways in which modern institutions colonize desire and overdetermine the life of its subject, this book draws upon the anti-Oedipal philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, revolutionary artistic practice, and an unorthodox curriculum genealogy to rethink the pedagogical project as a task of concept creation for the liberation of life and instantiation of a people yet to come. This book invites academics, artists, and graduate students to engage the contemporary struggles of curriculum theory, educational philosophy, and pedagogical practice with a new set of conceptual tools for thinking radical difference.

"A great curricular machine that works curriculum concepts in a variety of areas. Interested in understanding and appreciating the subtleties of Deleuze and Guattari's concept of a machine? Read Wallin's book! Engaging and very pleasant to read." - Jacques Daignault, Professor of Education, University of Quebec at Rimouski

"A thought-provoking, highly engaging work that will change the way the field thinks about both Deleuze and pedagogy. Wallin is an exciting new voice in the field of curriculum studies. He has an incredible range of interests and a lively grasp of what is current across a wide range of media, from graphic novels to jazz." - Ian Buchanan, Professor of Critical and Cultural Theory, Cardiff University

"A profound contribution to any field of study that grapples with the complexities of putting theory into practice."

- Alberta Journal of Educational Research

"A Deleuzian Approach to Curriculum . . . is a tour de fource of curriculum theorizing, 'art-based research in its most radical, nonrepresentational form' (Wallin, 2010, p. 9), and philosophy." - Journal of the Canadian Association for Curriculum Studies
