TH 414 Theatre History II


Credit, three hours.
This course follows a fairly strict chronology from the late eighteenth century to the present day and is designed to promote critical thinking about the nature and problems of linear, narrative historiography concerned with Theatre, specifically as it parallels the ascent and decline of the larger cultural movement of “Modernism.” This course investigates the development of, and the interaction between, four approaches to theatre that dominated most of the twentieth century: popular theatre, psychological realism, subjective theatre (culminating in the Theatre of Cruelty), and political (epic) theatre. A significant component will address World drama as well. Prerequisite(s): EN 101   and EN 102 .
