'Who am I? Who can tell me who I am?' The Importance of the Social and Political in Children’s and Young People’s Drama, edited by Carmel O’Sullivan, Susanne Colleary and David Davis with a foreword by Cecily O'Neill.

The book launch takes place on Zoom, Saturday 6th May 2023 from 1.00 - 3.00pm (Irish Time) GMT. Registration is essential via Eventbrite.  As this is an online event, the Zoom link will be sent to all registered attendees 24 hours prior to the launch.

It is an international panoramic of voices, all of whom are speaking from within their praxis contexts, that is the social and the political in the personal when working with children and young people, through drama and theatre in education. Each contributor illuminates how they are working within the socio-political contexts as it resonates and influences the personal experiences of their participants. This collection emerged from a conference of the same name, which took place at Trinity College Dublin in March 2019. The conference was organised by the Arts Education Research Group in the School of Education, in association with ADEI (the Association for Drama in Education in Ireland).
