Steve Watt

1:00p-2:15p TR (30 students) 3 cr. A&H.

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.
