THE2280 History of Theatre ID, FALL2020

A survey of the development of architectural and scenic styles in the physical structure of theatre from its beginnings in ancient Greece to its most current forms. Emphasis placed on the stylistic influences of theoreticians and artistic movements. Interdisciplinary Option: This course is a conversation between theater history and architecture. As such, the work in class focuses on purpose-built and adapted spaces for live performance. Each week we will examine historical theatre spaces and technologies in the context of prevailing cultural and social forces in order to better understand audience/stage relationships. To fulfill the interdisciplinary requirements for this course, specialists from architecture, art history, and performance technology will guest lecture six times over the course of the semester.Students will learn skill-sets from architecture technology: GIS mapping and hand sketching.

Course Description (course catalogue): Introduction to the writings of selected women writers, both major authors and less well-known women writers. A variety of genres including essays, fiction, poems, and plays will be explored. Our Course: Together, we will study the world of women through the eyes of women scholars and creative writers.

In doing so, we will examine the evolution of female identity, the current status and perception of the global woman, and the future prospects of girls and women worldwide, as the female identity transitions nationally and internationally. This class is both reading and writing intensive and will address the following socially sensitive topics: representations of girls and women on reality television; racial matters; sex/sexuality/sexual orientation; violence; politics; Class and the culture of power; and gender roles/expectations, among other areas of social concern.

Prof Cheng’s ARTH1100 History of Photography Fall 2019

“Great photography is always on the edge of failure.” — Garry Winogrand An introduction to photography as a fine art and communications medium, from the publication of its invention in 1839 to the present, among Western practitioners. Illustrated lectures and discussions appraise diverse overlapping functions of photographs and view camera work within the history of art and culture. Changing styles, purposes and techniques are outlined chronologically. Additional Description for this section: We will examine the use of photography for aesthetic, documentary, and “scientific” purposes, stylistic shifts in photography related to aesthetic concerns, and varying interpretations of subject matter based on social and cultural concerns at specific moments in history. We will also consider the relationship between photography and the visual arts in general, which culminates with the primacy of photography as a medium by the late twentieth century.
