Course Description: A study of the theatrical rituals of Greece, Rome, and the Middle Ages leading to the reinvention of theatre in Renaissance Italy, England, and Spain. Spring. Prerequisite: THE 050

Section Description: In this class, we’ll investigate the intersections between theatre history, dramatic literature, and cultural performance. We’ll focus on texts, theatrical and cultural events, and people as case studies in the history of performance.

This is a writing intensive class and students will have the opportunity to hone the skills they will need to do research in theatre history that is applicable to both academic and creative pursuits.
