New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2018


GERM 64.04 Theater and the Revolution

The modern theater is born from the spirit of unrest and revolution. This course is an introduction to the concept of the revolution and its relation to some of the most ground-breaking plays of modern drama. Particular emphasis will be given to the intersection between theater and history, art and politics, stage and the passion for justice. But along the way, we will cross the question of love, betrayal, disgust, rage, melancholia and death. We will read plays by Georg Büchner, Bertolt Brecht and Peter Weiss, and by contemporary playwrights Heiner Müller and Elfriede Jelinek (class in German).

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
