Meeting Description:

The seminar aims to give those interested in the role of theatre in university second language education the opportunity to share their research, ideas and practical experiences. These could range from the use of drama techniques such as improvisation in the communicative language classroom to full-scale production of theatrical works, and may relate to the teaching of any modern language. Participants will be able to explore the relationship between theatre and language curricula from a number of different perspectives and reflect on the power of the stage in fostering language and intercultural learning.

Call for Papers:

We welcome papers related to (but not necessarily restricted to) the following topics: drama techniques in the language classroom; the role of improvisation in language learning; the challenges of full-scale drama production; fostering lexical competence through drama; engaging with culture through theatrical performance; theatre and intercultural competence.

Papers should be no longer than 20 minutes.

The language of the seminar is English.

Abstracts should be: between 250 and 300 words; accompanied by the title of the paper and contact details; submitted by e-mail as an attached document to fionaclare.dalzielunipd.it with 'abstract_theatre_2011' as the subject of the message.
