- ItemThe theoretical architecture of a drama-based foreign-language class: A structure founded on communication, and supported by action, interaction, real experience and alternative methods(Peter Lang, 1993-01) Schewe, Manfred; Schewe, Manfred; Shaw, PeterComparison of the contributions in this volume will show the keyword Drama linking a lively profusion of teaching and learning activities, which in turn advert to a rich variety of theoretical reference points. This presentation of multifarious approaches is intended as a first step along the road to the establishment of drama as a method of language teaching and learning in its own right. In accordance with the general title of the volume, the following is an attempt to introduce the theoretical bases of such a method, i.e.: to define what might most usefully be understood here by a method; to consider in what specific areas future research might seek to provide theoretical accounts of a drama-based method of language teaching and learning; and above all, with reference to a number of relevant theories of (in particular foreign-language) teaching, to examine how far an overall theoretical framework may be constructed for drama as a complex and flexible resource in the foreign-language class.
- ItemIntroduction: Adaptation Considered as a Collaborative Art: Process and Practice(Springer International Publishing, 2020-05-09) MagShamhráin, Rachel; Preuschoff, Nikolai; Cronin, BernadetteThe introductory chapter seeks to resituate imaginatively the process of adaptation, borrowing from the myth of Orpheus to do so. Rather than a Cronus-like conflict between original and offspring, adaptation is imagined as an elegiac conversation, back and forth between the worlds of the living and the dead, and a refusal of the pastness of objects lost in time. This exchange between interlocutors across or against time produces art and meaning in a contrapuntal meeting of voices in both eu- and dysphonia.
