Aims, contents and method of the course

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 the 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), the West End (commercial). Naturally, we will also see a Shakespeare play in the reconstructed Globe Theatre (Shakespeare's Globe). And there will be opportunities to inspect major sights of London which hold a special appeal to students of British culture (e.g. British Museum, British Library, Bloomsbury).

NB: Course full. Please do NOT apply. For reasons of logistics, registration had to close on Dec. 15.

Assessment and permitted materials

Requirements for credit: There will be several 3-hour seminar sessions on Friday afternoons (March 13; March 27; April 24; May 15) to prepare for this field trip. Participants will be asked to give short presentations on selected topics and are expected to produce 'text' and/or multi-media material for final documentation.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

This field trip offers students a chance to explore London as the historical and cultural capital of the English-speaking world. It constitutes a regular course ("AR") and combines aspects of language, literature, and culture. Our main objective will be to see as many plays and theatres as is possible during our visit.

Examination topics

inter-active (oral presentations, class-room discussion, short introductory lectures, field work).
