Inspiring Interest in Theatre History, Literature, and Criticism
For this fourth annual roundtable discussion, we will focus on sharing ideas, strategies, and experiments in encouraging student interest and engagement with “drier” courses in the theatre curriculum. Participants are encouraged to bring handouts and/or examples. While this roundtable is aimed toward faculty participants, students, dramaturgs, and future teachers are encouraged to attend and contribute.

***(Please try to avoid scheduling me during core dramaturgy events as I am shadowing the coordinator to possibly step in for next year. Please also avoid Next Step Auditions and the recruiting lunch as I will need to be in attendance for both.)
