THD 295-02 - Special Topic: Contemporary African Theatre and Performance

4 credits (Spring)
In this course, students will examine contemporary theatre practices and theories from several of the many nations that comprise the African continent. Rather than observing - as the Economist did in 2011 and Time did in 1998 and 2012 - that “Africa is rising”, we will avoid these essentializing memes through careful historiographic work and local, national, and regional specificity.

Prerequisite: One 100-level Theatre course.
Instructor: Cima
