Look both ways - Narrative & Metaphor in Education:

Over the last 30 years, educationists have drawn increasingly on insights from
philosophy, psychology, anthropology, cognitive science and linguistics to
examine the roles played by narrative and metaphor in every domain of
educational theory and practice. The narrative and metaphor perspectives have,
however, mostly been used separately and opportunities for researchers and
educators to meet and share their ideas are rare. This conference takes up the
challenge of bringing educationists who have employed the narrative lens into
conversation with those who have employed the metaphor lens. It highlights the
work of those few researchers who have demonstrated 'binocular vision' (that
is, employed the two perspectives in combination) in their study of education.
The implications of research for teaching and policy practice will be
particularly emphasized. The result should be a fuller account than has
previously been attempted of the intricate relations which operate at the
nexus between narrative and metaphor in and of education.

There will be 6 confirmed keynote presentations, by scholars who have
undertaken outstanding work on narrative and metaphor in educational theory or

Jean Clandinin, Vera Caine & Sean Lessard - University of Alberta, Canada
Martin Cortazzi - University of Warwick & Lixian Jin - De Montfort University,
Kieran Egan - Simon Fraser University, Canada
Michael Hanne - University of Auckland, New Zealand
Martijn Meeter - Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Niklas Pramling - University of Gothenburg, Sweden

Registration: 1 October 2016 - 17 February 2017

The conference will be organized from the Vrije Universiteit (VU)
(https://www.vu.nl/en/index.aspx) teacher training institute in Amsterdam by a
team of education, narrative and metaphor specialists. Its research institute,
LEARN! (http://www.learn.vu.nl/nl/learn-in-english/index.aspx), carries out
both basic and applied research on learning and education. The conference is
organized in collaboration with Metaphor Lab Amsterdam
(http://metaphorlab.org/). It is the fourth in a series on the role of
narrative and metaphor in different disciplines. The first, relating to
medicine, was held at UC Berkeley in 2010. The second, relating to politics,
was held at Claremont Graduate University in 2012. The third, relating to law,
was held at Stanford Law School in early 2016.

2nd Call for Papers:

Proposals for interactive paper sessions, posters and 75-minute workshops
(with an applied focus) are invited from scholars and practitioners in every
field of education. Presentations employing innovative or creative formats are
particularly welcome and submissions by practising teachers are invited. 

Submission deadline: 31 October 2016.

Van 30 maart tot en met 1 april 2017 organiseert de lerarenopleiding van de VU
i.s.m. het Metaphor Lab Amsterdam een internationaal congres waarin  de
fenomenen narrativiteit en metaforiek centraal staan: 'Look both ways:
narrative & metaphor in education'. Verhalen vertellen en het gebruik van
metaforen worden vaak vooral geassocieerd met literatuur en poëzie.
Wetenschappers binnen de filosofie, psychologie, antropologie en taalkunde
hebben de afgelopen 30 jaar echter laten zien dat zowel verhalen als metaforen
een fundamentele rol spelen in ons denken, ervaren, voorstellen en begrijpen.
Dat maakt deze fenomenen bij uitstek interessant voor onderwijsland.

Het congres richt zich op metaforen en narrativiteit in het onderwijs, maar
ook in discours over het onderwijs, of op narrativiteit en metaforiek als
onderzoeksmethode. Daarnaast is een belangrijk aandachtspunt het samenbrengen
van wetenschap en praktijk – wat hebben we in de praktijk aan de inzichten uit

Bij dezen nodigen we iedereen die een bijdrage wil leveren uit om te reageren
op de ‘call for papers’ (deadline 31 oktober). We accepteren ideeën voor
workshops, paperpresentaties en posterpresentaties. De voertaal op het congres
is Engels.

De volgende keynote presentaties zijn bevestigd: Jean Clandinin, Vera Caine &
Sean Lessard (University of Alberta, Canada) / Martin Cortazzi (University of
Warwick) & Lixian Jin (De Montfort University, UK) / Kieran Egan (Simon Fraser
University, Canada) & Michael Hanne (University of Auckland, New Zealand) /
Martijn Meeter (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands) / Niklas
Pramling (University of Gothenburg, Sweden).
