Spectatorship: Time, Place, Performance

Level 4 (15 credits)

This module investigates histories of spectatorship across a range of cultural and historical contexts. We?ll consider how we can analyse theatre going, audiences and spectatorship in other times and places, and use this historical investigation to reflect on the various forms that spectatorship has taken over time. We?ll explore these issues through field trips, examination of archival and other primary sources, and by engaging with critical debates.
