Approaches to Interpretation of Theater and Performance
Fall 2020 - I love Prof. Fitzgerald!! The readings are kinda tough but he's more than happy to schedule office hours, and is very clear about what he wants written in the essays. I learned so much about Black theater I think this was my most interesting theater class freshman year. Take this class! It will make you a better student and teach you to think critically.
Spring 2018 - I adore this class because it was so unique in the sense that I learned something new every lecture that occurred on Tuesday's and Thursday's. I was in the body and performance global studies section for this course, and I'm glad I took it not knowing what to expect. There were a lot of surprises in this class, so it kept me on my toes. I learned a lot about performance art and how much it means to society. I learned about how bodies interact over time with other bodies including death, gender, limits, habits, and other random but useful information. This class is a writing class so there are two essays to complete throughout the quarter. One of them is a performance analysis and the other is a film analysis, so be sure to do those as well as you can because they do count for most of your grade. The rest of your grade comes from attendance, 5 pop quizzes on some of the readings given every class, participation and a group project that occurs at the end of the quarter. The professor really cares about improvement and thoroughly wants you to do well. She knows what she's talking about, so listen. There is an extra credit opportunity to watch her give a K-POP lecture in Royce Hall, so do that because it was 2% of the final grade. Overall, I really enjoyed this class and appreciated that it was in a small group setting.
