CLAS 89H - First-Year Seminar: Special Topics

Description
Taking a participatory approach to ancient Greek drama, this course pairs readings from three celebrated playwrights with performance-oriented activities, readings, and writings. Probing the dual nature of drama as performance and script, this course also gives a historical overview of the extraordinary Athenian fifth century (BCE), demonstrating how theater and art inform and interact with politics and society. Weekly theatrical exercises, three group dramatic performances, several short writing assignments (including mock directors’ notes and publicity copy), and use of campus BeAM spaces.
