Study of theater history, plays, aesthetic theories, and performance techniques from 1700 to the present. Topics will include theater architecture, acting, theater criticism and theory, and the cultural politics of each period we examine. This course assumes that theater is both an art form and a social institution. As such, we will examine representative texts as both aesthetic and cultural documents, exploring how these plays were produced, for whom, and why.
