ENGL 2486 Drama of Harlem and Irish Renaissance (Spring: 3 )
This course offers a comparative study of theatrical developments in two ethnic revival movements of the early twentieth century, the so-called Irish and Harlem `Renaissances.' Among topics to be discussed will be the intentions of the playwrights in both movements, their attempts to explore and define national and racial identities, their problematic relations with their audiences, and their use of myth, history, and dialect.
