Abstract

The article focuses on the ideas and meanings that emerge for the author as she experiences the death of her father. Here, through a series of vignettes which expose curricula as live(d) by herself, her father, and others, the author explores multiple conceptions of the live(d) curriculum. As a result, ideas and meanings of (in)visibility, last(ing) rituals, and life feeling itself surface and in significant ways occasion the author’s new awareness and deeper understanding of the live(d) curriculum.
