Lifelong learning attracts various stories to tell the tales of its successes and futures. These stories include marginalising metanarratives, resistant counternarratives and other accounts. This paper illustrates these stories by referring to information literacy, critical theory and informal learning as gleaned from the refereed proceedings of the first four conferences.
