THTR 211 - Western Theater History

Credits: 3

This course examines theater from the Renaissance period up to the modern era. Students read, analyze, and perform texts from this period, studying in detail how the theater is culturally created and maintained. The goal of the course is to gain a general overview of how the theater came to be what it is today. Since theater is primarily a cultural institution, we simultaneously examine politics, philosophy, religion, science, and other factors that influence how the art form is created, maintained, and culturally preserved. We also examine history itself as an important cultural tool for assessing the events of the past. Sandberg, Levy.
