The Dramaturgical Approach to Psychology|
Fall 2009 not offered
The objective of this course is to explore the use of the language of theater in the illumination of psychological questions. Material for the course will be about half drama, half readings from social psychology. Among the issues to be explored are politics as theater, audience effects, role-playing as a teaching and therapeutic technique, the actor's identity problems, and general theory of the mask.
Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Interpretation
Designing, Creating, and Realizing: Students will have responsibility for designing and conducting exercises for specific topics and plays.
Interpretation: Much of the work of the course is interpretive in the sense of translating the themes and issues in drama to our lives as they are lived.
