Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Our main objective will be to see as many plays and theatres as possible during our visit. Apart from play-going (the exact titles of plays will be announced as theatre schedules become available during the winter/early spring), we will study London's theatre scene as such by exploring different venues and their role and significance for English theatre history as a whole, e.g. the Royal Court (experimental and contemporary), the National Theatre (theatre for the nation), and Shakespeare's Globe.
There are also plans for a day-trip to Stratford-upon-Avon and a visit to the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company's home base. In addition there will be opportunities to inspect the major sights of London which hold a special appeal to students of British culture (e.g. British Museum, British Library, Bloomsbury, Greenwich, V&A, Brick Lane).

Regular attendance, active participation in class, oral/ppt presentation, written contribution to field trip journal.
