    Opening Keynotes - Carole Miller and Juliana Saxton

    It seems like no time at all...

    50 years!  Its’ hard to believe that we’ve been around for much of that time.  We are really looking forward to talking with you – a little about the past (because it is the frame that we all can share), a bit more about the present (we’d like to explore the conditions of the new millennium—chaotic, contingent and ever-changing—thanks to the digital dance of the algorithms), and the possibilities of the “new” curricula in drama and theatre.  We can’t see into the future but we hope to shore up your sense of agency in this crazy and dangerous world so that you and your students can work together confidently and critically to slay the fake news trolls and the sleazy dragons of alternative facts. Embedded in the keynote will be opportunities for discussion, for reflections on practice and on the possibilities for change.

    Biographies:

    Carole Miller, professor emeritus, Department of Curriculum & Instruction, Faculty of Education and

    Juliana Saxton, professor emeritus, Department of Theatre, are still with the University of Victoria; they also hold adjunct appointments in the University of Sydney, Australia that includes master teaching for the Sydney Theatre Company.  Together, they chaired the 2nd International Drama in Education Research Institute, 1997, were responsible for the Academic Program for the 5th World Congress of IDEA 2004, and served as the Reflective Keynote speakers for IDEA 2007 in Hong Kong.  Most recently, they presented workshops and lectured at the universities of Auckland and Canterbury and for the New Zealand Drama Association in Christchurch and Dunedin that explored how learners bring together a range of metalanguages through real and fictional conversations of experience.  In May of this year, they presented their research on inquiry-based learning for faculty and staff of the University of Wolverhamption, UK. Into the Story 2: More Stories! More Drama! (Intellect, 2016), with a focus on social justice issues, follows up their award-winning text, Into the Story: Language in Action through Drama.
