Theatre Studies

Method: Historiography

February 15, 2019

Method: Performance Studies

Performance Studies has been described as a marriage of Theater and Anthropology, yet it is both more and less than those two disciplines.

Students will create a practical project that allows them to apply the methodologies we study, including participant-observation ethnography.
