HIST 227 - Discover Scotland: History and Culture through Theater


(THTR 227) FDR: HU
Credits: 4

Spring Term Abroad. For a small nation of just over 5 million, Scotland looms remarkably large in our historical, cultural, and artistic imagination. This course travels to Edinburgh, Glasgow, and the Highlands to allow students to go beyond the mythologizing and romance to discover Scotland as it has been experienced and performed by the Scottish people. Using Scotland's vibrant and remarkably political theater scene as our jumping-off point, we study this country's history and culture, examining the powerful intersections of myth and reality that shape Scottish identity past and present. We pay particular attention to the dichotomies -- Highland and Lowland; urban and rural; separatist and unionist; poor and rich; Protestant and Catholic, etc. -- that make modern Scotland such a fascinating subject of historical and artistic inquiry. Brock, Levy.
