[ecrea] CfP HEA Arts and Humanities - Interdisciplinarity in teaching and learning narrative

Thu Nov 14 13:55:59 GMT 2013

CfP – Interdisciplinarity in teaching and learning narrative: Crossing creative and critical boundaries

Friday 28th March 2014 – The University of Brighton
Keynote Speakers

Professor Corinne Squire – Centre for Narrative Research, University of East London

Graham Rawle – Writer, artist and designer

Narrative has emerged as a vibrant field of academic enquiry with several research centres across the UK, dedicated international journals, and an emerging understanding of the importance of narrative beyond academic study in for example social change. Traditionally located in literary scholarship, narrative has developed a distinctive place in a variety of academic and professional fields including teachers’ CPD, counselling and medical practice. In contemporary academia, narrative is a focus across a range of disciplinary areas including Illustration, Design, English Literature, Media, Film and Screen, History, Politics, English Language and Linguistics. It is incorporated into social enquiry in areas including conflict studies, migration and belonging, memory, identity, discourse studies and folklore.

This one day workshop aims to bring together scholars working in trans-disciplinary ways in Higher Education in order to explore the potential of narrative as both an interdisciplinary object of enquiry and a facilitator of that enquiry for academic and personal development. We invite both papers and workshop activities from academics, students and practitioners across a broad range of practices and subject areas to address interdisciplinarity in the teaching and learning of narrative across critical and creative boundaries including but not limited to:

· Interdisciplinary teaching of/in/through narrative

· Where the creative and critical meet in the teaching and learning of narrative

· Political – personal dialogues in the teaching and learning of narrative

· Narrative practices of teacher and learner identities

· Narrating the self online

· Community engagement through narrative practices

· The future of interdisciplinary narrative study in HE
