Global Performance in Context

Spring 2021

Taught By: Tabitha Chester and Kamala Sankaram

Section: A

CRN: 9352

Credits: 3

This course, for graduate drama and music students, deepens and expands students’ capacity to interpret dramatic and musical texts by situating these texts as the products of unique social and historical dynamics. Every three weeks, the course will examine a different place and time, exploring the principal social, political, economic, and cultural concerns of that geographic and historical moment. For each of these moments, the class will then study a specific dramatic and musical work created in this moment, examining the impact of socio-historical dynamics on the work of art, the ways in which the work gives voice to the unique cultural concerns of the moment, and how this specific relevance could be translated to apply to other times and places. As a final project, each student will select an artistic work from a period other than those studied by the class as a whole, and devise a creative approach to this work that incorporates an awareness of the work’s relevance to its original time and place.
