教學時程



We will have some video screenings and (I hope) at least one trip to the theater during the semester; I am also hoping to arrange for you to meet some theatrical professionals. For this reason and in order to allow flexibility in our conversations, this is a tentative schedule of class discussion topics: Please check in if you miss a session, so that you can participate fully in class.
