Heroes and monsters: extra-ordinary tales of learning and teaching in
> the arts and humanities Manchester, UK
> 2 - 4 June 2014
> Call for contributions
> The 3rd annual Higher Education Academy Arts and Humanities annual learning and teaching conference will take place in Manchester, 2 - 4 June 2014, and we are inviting contributions which explore the everyday business of learning and teaching through metaphors and narratives in order to make strange the 'taken-for-grantedness' of our academic practice.
> 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. 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.
> We are looking for papers, debates, workshops, PechaKucha presentations, and posters which transfigure our practice and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning into fantastic tales of the unexpected, and which draw upon the richness and diversity of our disciplinary practices. We are also calling for creative and unconventional pre-conference workshops.
