DiE Days 2020

Update: We are currently still hoping that the conference can take place in Konstanz as planned. Due to the uncertain situation at the moment we will only be able to make that decision in a couple of weeks. If a normal conference is not possible, we will consider online formats. Registration for the conference will, however, probably not be opened before May.

The sixth annual Drama in Education Days will take place in Konstanz, Germany from July
16th-18th 2020. The conference focuses on best practice and research in the field of
Drama and Theatre in Education specifically in second and foreign language teaching.

Keynote speakers:

Erika Piazzoli, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland

Manfred Schewe, Prof. em at University College Cork (UCC), Ireland; founding co-editor of the Journal Scenario
