Early modern London's emergence as a global capital and its influence on Shakespeare's plays. Instructor permission required.
The goal of the course is: 1. to introduce students to Shakespeare’s plays as well as contemporary scholarly methods used to study Shakespeare’s work in a cultural studies framework; 2. to introduce students to the history of London's emergence as a global capital in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and to interrogate the relationship between early modern literary representations of the “city” and Shakespeare's works; 3. to connect this history to modern understandings of global capitals (like London or Washington DC) paying close attention to how Shakespeare’s works serve as a bridge between radically different times and places; 3. to give students the chance to hone their writing through careful analysis of Shakespeare’s plays within their historical context and within ours.
