Course Description:

This interdisciplinary and experiential course consists of two parts, the first conducted in weekly meetings during the fall semester and the second in London, England during Winterim.

The first part of the course offers an introduction to the study of theater and art history, and to the social and artistic history of London. Course participants will engage in readings and research relating to some aspect of our planned experience. This research will be presented to the rest of the class when we are in London.

The two-week trip to London will provide the opportunity to study theater and art history in one of the world’s premier cities for such study.

While in London, course participants will experience historical, modern, and contemporary theater and art. Class sessions in London will be designed to enrich experiential learning through faculty and student presentations.

Our itinerary will include plays, museums and art galleries, coordinated when possible so that we will view art from the era of a play we will be seeing, whether historical or contemporary. We will also visit cultural sites in and around London that have been important historically for artists and playwrights.
