At this year-end HEC seminar, "unhallowed," we will examine ideas linked to Gothic art and culture and discuss the impact of the Romantic period on educational theory and practice. We will also be considering why certain ideas have become "sacred" in academic scholarship and education, why certain ideas are exalted, and why some grounds have become "hallowed" from our various disciplinary perspectives.
