Performative Spaces in Language, Literature and Culture Education

9 Oct
Going Performative in Intercultural Education

A film documenting the SCENARIO FORUM Conference 2017 at University College Cork, Ireland has been launched. This conference focussed on the use of performative spaces in language, literature and culture education and explored how we can create performative spaces in education. The SCENARIO project is based in the Department of Drama and Theatre Studies and the Department of German at UCC.

This wonderful film will be of interest to all those with an interest in active learning methodologies, and can be viewed at http://bit.ly/2kWjeds A new book, directly linked to this video, was published in August 2017. ‘Going Performative in Intercultural Education’, edited by John Crutchfield (Freie Universität Berlin) and Manfred Schewe (Head of the Department of Drama and Theatre Studies at UCC, introduces scholars, language teachers, student teachers and drama practitioners to the concept of performative teaching and
learning. It presents an impressive collection of theoretical and practical approaches by international scholars, practitioners, teacher trainers and artists, and explores how drama pedagogy can inform a new teaching and learning culture centred on performative experience.

Contributions to the SCENARIO Forum Conference, which has been nominated for an award by the Cork Convention Bureau, will be published in the first two issues of SCENARIO JOURNAL. Issue 1 has just been published at: http://research.ucc.ie/scenario/2017/01
