English 7070: Canadian Drama: Looking Back
English 7070 will introduce topics in Canadian drama written between the sixties and the nineties. Topics which will be explored include "regional/isms," "alternative," "collective," "female voices," "realism," and "expanding parameters," among others. Since drama cannot be considered outside of its theatrical context, we will also consider Canadian theatre or cultural forces, both national and provincial, that surround each topic. Generally the areas to be studied will include analysis and evaluation of plays, consideration of drama critics and criticism, and acknowledgement of the varied theatrical movements at work.
