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.
