Thematic Track 9

Theme 9: Contestations and Pedagogic Practices: Fuzzy Boundaries but Clear Teaching?

Coordinators: Professor Maheshvari Naidu and Professor Daisy Pillay

This track invites papers which recognise that so called ‘signature pedagogies’ are constitutive of identity formations through multiple and sometimes competing discursive practices at play in particular pedagogic spaces and specific disciplinary contexts. Papers that probe transdisciplinarity and post disciplinarity and what this may mean for embodied and ‘disciplined’ teaching philosophies, identities and practices are invited. Both theoretical papers as well as empirical papers that compel us to confront who we are within our teaching, what we teach within our disciplinary- transdisciplinary ‘boundaries’, and why we teach the way we do, are invited.
