History of Drama and Theater I
THEA 203
Spring 2011
Section: 01  

This course uses historical examples of drama and performance in Europe, from the Greeks to the early 17th century, to consider the ways in which theater historians reconstruct and analyze theatrical events of the past. Our investigation is chronically and thematically designed to pinpoint major epochs in the development of Western 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.
