Students are expected to participate regularly and actively, to prepare a presentation, and to write a term paper (8-10 pages).
In this course we will be reading and watching a wide range of 20th and 21st century dramatic performances in English. The focus of the course is examining how a number of seminal authors such as Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, Carol Churchill, Sarah Kane and Martin Crimp go about staging the themes of fear and anxiety as a way of exploring our contemporary lives and their inherent existential dilemmas.
The texts for this course will be made available for photocopying.
