This course offers an introduction to Hispanic drama from the
Spanish Golden Age to twentieth-century Spanish America. The focus
of the course is the role of women in theater and society. We will
read a variety of plays whose protagonists are strong, complex, and
often subversive women, and scrutinize their assigned roles, both
fictional and real. We will consider the textual as well as the
theatrical aspects of each play, and study the social, political,
and historical contexts while developing an understanding of the
relationship between gender and drama in the Hispanic tradition.
Grades will be based on midterm and final exams, short writing
assignments, readings, class discussions, and classroom staging and
performing.
