Al Shamma

Georgetown University professor Kate Al-Shamma moved to Washington DC in 2018 after teaching and performing in the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 25 years. She holds a doctorate in theater and a master's degree in communication. In theatre, Kate specializes in Shakespeare, choreographic image theater and oral history performance. She is a theater director and acting, voice and movement coach. In the field of communication, Kate has conducted extensive research in performance studies, voice science and rhetoric. She specializes in field methodologies, with a particular focus on performance ethnography.
At Georgetown, she teaches “public speaking” and “advocacy,” with an emphasis on personal encounter and community building. All of Kate's classes are designed to help students be more aware of the present moment  and to be more connected to each other.

She is a university professor at the School of Social and Human Sciences of Paris-Est Créteil University and works in the field of language teaching in relation to the performing arts. She is also a faculty member of the École Normale Supérieure de Paris-Créteil and a full member of the IMAGER research group. Her research focuses on the role of aesthetics in language learning and teaching. In her latest projects, she explores how a performative approach to language teaching through the paradigm of enaction (Varela) could pave the way for a new perspective on the role of arts education, especially theatre, in the development of empathetic skills, which she says are a major component of cross-cultural competence. The doctoral theses she supervises explore the links between the arts and language education.
