The II European Conference on Curriculum Studies (II ECCS) will take place at the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto on October 16th and 17th, 2015, under the theme "Curriculum Studies: policies, perspectives and practices”.

The conference will explore three axes and their articulation, as they define research in the curriculum field. Trends that shape current European curriculum studies emerge from economic crisis as much as they emerge from a re-stating movement concerning education improvement. Curriculum academics must analyse in a broad scope the new entanglements to policies, perspectives and practices on the curriculum field. The II ECCS is the arena for this challenge.

English is the official language of the Conference.
