TH 260 - From Shakespeare to Sitcom

3.00 credits.
This course is comprised of a 14-day international trip to Italy. It is an investigation into the society, customs, and culture of the Italian Renaissance (1450-1650) and the ways in which it contributed to the development of that era’s popular entertainment – the Italian theater form Commedia dell’Arte. In turn, we examine how commedia has given rise to modern forms of Western popular entertainment. This course is open to all majors upon approval by the instructor.
