Performance and Interpretation (DRA2064)

30 credits

Performance and Interpretation develops students’ understanding of the complex and contested idea of performance and the variety of ways we might interpret it. It is built around a series of lectures given by departmental staff on their current research in their respective fields and disciplines. This means you are directly engaged with the work that is shaping contemporary performance scholarship. The module sets out to trouble and develop your understanding of research and approaches to it. Come prepared to read, to think, to be challenged, and to reconsider your role as a researcher and make your own discoveries about your research passions.

Incoming international students and Exeter students from other disciplines welcome, subject to availability. In addition to students of drama, performance or theatre studies, this module will engage the interest of students with a background in histories, languages and literatures
