Special Topics in Theater History
THEA 203
Fall 2017
Section: 01  

This course uses historical examples, from preliterate Yoruba ritual performances to early 17th-century European theater, to consider the ways in which theater historians reconstruct and analyze theatrical events of the past. Our investigation is chronologically and thematically designed to pinpoint major epochs in the development of theater as well as to comparatively approach the ways in which scholars uncover evidence regarding such issues as character, criticism, gender, nationalism, race, religion, sexuality, spectatorship, and spectacle in performance.
