ELIT 371 - Shakespeare and Culture 3 s.h.

This seminar course is designed for students who wish to immerse themselves more fully in reading and analyzing a particular aspect of Shakespeare's plays.  We will focus closely on three plays and consider how the plays intersect with a number of contentious issues in both early modern and postmodern cultures.  Topics may range from legal and gender issues, to religion and the stage, to sexual and racial identity issues.  In addition, we will view film versions, where available, considering how these films contribute to the ongoing reinvention of Shakespeare in our present day culture. Pass/Fail Option. Offered every 2-3 years.
Prerequisite(s): LITR 150 , ELIT 270  with a "C" or better, and COMP 200  or COMP 290 .
