SPAN 6688 Modern and Postmodern Spanish Theater (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The purpose of the course is to analyze Spanish theater from the post-Civil War period to present day. By examining such concepts as language, style, context, character, themes, and structure, the course will provide students with important tools for text analysis. Students will also learn how theater responds to the Spain of these historical times, how it wrestles with political and social issues facing the country during the modern and postmodern periods. Plays will also be discussed from the perspective of theory and politics of theater (i.e., different views of Public officials and theater professionals, young writers’ situation, opposition between alternative and commercial theater, and confrontation between authors and directors).
