AbstractThis clip will evoke and inspire: for those who were at the conference Performative Spaces in Language, Literature and Culture Education (University College Cork, May 25 – 28), it will no doubt bring back the memories, the connections, the ‘aha’ moments. For
those who couldn’t make it, it is a great opportunity to catch up on key issues of the conference, especially as Manfred Schewe’s
opening interview offers a rationale for performative language teaching. Eva Göksel’s enchanting voice features throughout
as the soundtrack of the film, a melodic thread that joins different voices together, in her live interpretation of the Irish
Raggle Taggle Gypsy ballad.
