LIT112 HM - Critical Shakespeares

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Dadabhoy

Offered: Fall

Description: This course will approach Shakespeare’s plays through contemporary social and cultural issues. We will explore and challenge the notion of Shakespeare’s universality, to understand how and why this writer and his work continues to resonate with us today. Themes that we might explore in any given semester include: #MeToo, Social Justice, Imperialism and Colonialism, and Global Shakespeare. The final project for this course will engage with “public humanities,” by creating either a zine, submitting writing to a blog, or creating a course conference. The topic will change/rotate every time it is offered.

HSA Course Area(s): Literature
