Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic historico-literary knowledge of the Greek world from Homer to the IV century, and of the Roman world from the Republic to the early imperial era.
Target skills and knowledge: In-depth knowledge of the fundamental elements and the synchronic and diachronic developments of ancient Greek and Roman tragic and comic theatre, with regards also to historical, political, literary and archaeological aspects. In-depth knowledge of the texts in their specificity as theatrical scripts meant for the stage.
Examination methods: Oral exam
Assessment criteria: The students will be evaluated based on their ability to critically discuss the contents of the texts in relation to the theme chosen for the course.
Evaluation will also consider their ability to contextualize authors and texts, in relation to the historical period they belong to.
Course unit contents: Reading and in-depth critical analysis of Greek and Roman dramas, and of modern rewritings thereof.
The course focuses in particular on exploring: The female role in Greek and Latin theater
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Supported by the reading of several fundamental texts, we will study both the technical and content-related aspects of Greek and Roman theatre, in order to establish an in-depth interpretive framework. Activities will also include the analysis of footage from modern stagings of the dramas, as an inquiry in the exegetic potential of the classics.
