Theater 126 (Fall 2019) | Performance Literatures: Modernism — This course serves as a survey of experimental theater in the 20th century. What do we mean by the term “modernism” and what performance techniques were manifested within it?

Jewish Studies 120 (Fall 2019) | Jewish Folktales Around the World: Past and Present, Self and Other — Through reading a “sampler platter” of Jewish folktales, proverbs, and jokes, we will explore diverse Jewish cultures throughout the world and across time. Our approach will be interdisciplinary, combining methodologies of history, literature, and anthropology.
