THDA 490 - Capstone and Honors Seminar

This is a reading and writing intensive course that engages theories from the fields of aesthetics and cultural studies to support each student’s in-depth research into a topic of their choice. Discussions examine how particular uses of the body, space, and narrative intersect to inform our experience of “performance,” broadly defined, and engage the interplay between real and fictional in both artistic productions and performative social contexts. Students may pursue archival and library research, analysis of live performance, and analysis of documents of various kinds, including visual materials. Required for Theater and Dance majors, open to Dance, Theater, and Performance Design and Technologies minors. Every fall. (4 Credits)
