Shakespeare and Theatre

This course encourages a historical approach to interpretation and styles of presentation and it promotes the value of close reading as the basis for evaluating the plays on the page, stage, and screen. Students will have the opportunity to look at different productions and adaptations of Shakespeare's plays in their historical, political, and cultural contexts and to think about the performance choices actors and directors make when approaching Shakespeare's texts. The textual history of how Shakespeare's plays influences performance today can also be studied.
