ENG 3340/HUM 3310 Cultural Criticism: Drama and Empire
Monday – Thursday 10 am – 12:45 pm; Dr. Sandra Dahlberg

[Prerequisite: 3 hours of literature and 3 hours of philosophy]
Course Description: In this course students will study the ways that empire and colonization are represented in dramatic works produced in or about England and Scotland. The course introduces students to the historical development of the English drama genre, and the interrelatedness of drama with exploration, conquest, colonization from the medieval period to the contemporary era. Since drama is an interactive performance between players and audience, text and players, text and readers, students will be provided opportunities to attend live performances and visit important theatrical and historical venues. We will conduct close analyses of plays to interpret meaning, impact, characterizations, context and staging.
