Modern Drama: Continental

9:30a-10:45a TR (30) 3 cr.

This section of Modern Continental drama will focus on the development of modern and contemporary European drama, on political theater and the so-called “Theatre of the Absurd,” on feminist drama, and on a new wave of contemporary Irish drama. We will read plays by Shaw, O’Casey, Friel, Chekhov, and a host of writers since World War II, including Marina Carr, Martin McDonagh and Caryl Churchill.

The course will also include a focus on the development of critical writing skills, culminating in the drafting of a research paper.
