T500 – Research Methods & Materials
Eight week course
Other than incoming graduate students in Theatre and Drama,
admission to this course is by written permission of instructor only.
The objective of the course is to familiarize students with research
resources and methods, to develop skills in documentation and
argument, and to improve writing styles, all to support a successful
graduate career in research and production. We’ll engage in
specific research projects that will broaden knowledge of theatre
bibliography; we’ll look at computerized resources for research and
communication; we’ll study various collections at IUB libraries
related to theatre studies; and we’ll engage in a final project that
emulates the creation of a script and production.
