COMM-4213 Performance Conventions: Religious Drama
Students will investigate the historical, theoretical and ritual relationship between religion and theatre through reading, critical writing and performance. Special topics will include religious and supernatural dramas, contemporary associations between religion and theatre and the role of theatre in evangelistic ministry. Students will synthesize their coursework in a final project that integrates religion and theatre in scholarly writing or formal staging. Rehearsal and composition outside of class will be required. The two versions of Performance Conventions will alternate. This course is normally offered in the spring semester of every other odd numbered year.
