Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

It is the aim of this lecture course to provide an introduction to the theatre history and theatre historiography of the British Isles. It will attempt an overview of the physical givens of theatre and drama in combination with a consideration of the vicissitudes of British and Irish cultural history. In other words, in this course we will study theatres as playing spaces in relation to prevailing traditions of drama and dramaturgy in their respective socio-cultural contexts. The cultural studies approach proposed here will combine aspects of theatre history, theatre architecture, literary and cultural history.

Examination topics
