From its ideological origins in the 17th century to its current struggle to represent the diversity of its communities, American Theater is an art that is in constant dialogue with the culture surrounding it. Early American drama, in its character tropes and styles, will serve as a backdrop to exploring the impact of contemporary subversive female voices like Suzan-Lori Parks or the far-reaching effects of a phenomenon like HAMILTON: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL on the landscape of American drama and theater. This blended/hybrid course (1/2 in-seat and 1/2 online) fulfills both the Fine Arts requirement and the Human Diversity requirement in the core curriculum.It also satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing to Learn requirement.
