Heroes and monsters: extra-ordinary tales of learning and teaching in the arts and humanities cfp

Posted: November 3, 2013 in CFP

The 3rd HEA Arts and Humanities annual learning and teaching conference will take place on 2 – 4 June 2014 at The Lowry, Salford Quays, Manchester.

Monsters dwell in the hinterlands of the known world, symbolic expressions of cultural unease. Inhabitants of an imagined realm adjunct to the everyday, monsters offer powerful tropes and tools for learning and teaching in the arts and humanities.

Our 3rd annual arts and humanities conference invites you to explore the everyday business of learning and teaching through metaphor and narrative, and so transfigure the ‘taken-for-grantedness’ of academic practice into fantastic tales of the unexpected.

This conference asks how monsters can unnerve and innervate those working in arts and humanities higher education today. We consider how monstrous pedagogies can disrupt the realities and habits of higher education in the arts and humanities, and articulate different ways of being for learners and teachers in the disciplines.
