ENGL3269Shakespeare Now (O)3 ch (3C) [W]
After we read Facebook and Twitter to find out what's happening, we turn to Shakespeare to make sense of it. This course looks at urgent twenty-first-century issues interpreted through Shakespeare's plays and related contemporary criticism and performances. Such issues might include political tyranny, war, trauma, race, sexual harassment, gender, queerness, disability, body-type discrimination, colonialism, environmentalism, and animal-human relations. NOTE: Students cannot obtain credit for both ENGL 3260 and ENGL 3269.
