Event description
This talk considers how Drama and Theatre is taught and learned.

About this Event

This presentation (from Dr David Linton and Jackie Smart - Kingston University) begins with a reflection on two linked projects in which began in 2014. Taking Race Live was an interdisciplinary staff-student project, originated by the departments of Sociology and Drama but later incorporating Music, Media and Dance. Performing Dialogues of Race and Culture was a sister project, which is ongoing today and is specific to Drama.

Looking at these projects now, in the context of the activism and protests associated with the Black Lives Matter movement, we pose questions about how Drama and Theatre is taught and learned; how the 'classic' curriculum and traditional teaching methods are experienced by students and staff, and about the challenges and potential for change made possible when we listen to our students.
