THTR 182 - Theater and Social History (4)

This course is required for Performing Arts and Social Justice Majors with a Theater Concentration and Theater Minors. This theater history course focuses on the relationship between theater and social change. Using case studies from different key moments in Western theatrical history, we will examine the artistic, social and political forces that have inspired theater artists to develop innovative artistic techniques and new theatrical forms, and consider how those forms have reflected and shaped cultural consciousness and promoted social action.
