Title: Theatre History and Literature: Modern Formerly 1032
Description: This course is an exploration of the principal literary periods and styles of drama from the nineteenth century through the theatre of today. Students will examine the rise of realism, modernity and postmodernity in theatre through the critical lenses of structuralism, semiotics, and identity. The course will investigate changes in written form as well as the role these works played in society, the physical spaces in which they were performed, the manner in which they were acted, and cultural attitudes toward the art form itself. Course may be taken out of sequence.
