Course Content (Syllabus)
The general aim of this introductory course is mainly to develop the student’s ability for critical reading, thinking, and writing and to sharpen their argumentative skills. Since its generic orientation is drama, it focuses on the analysis of exemplary theatrical texts, specially chosen to familiarize the students with the performative features of drama, which distinguish it from other forms of literary/textual writing. The teaching of this course is supplemented with audiovisual material, in-class exercises, and occasional visits to the theatre, aimed at familiarizing the students with plays both as written and as performance texts.
