- Theatre in Context introduces incoming theatre majors to the breadth of today's Theatre and Performance ecology and its relationship to Theater History with a particular central focus- an invitation for each student to begin a journey towards intentionality as an artist. Your time at Northwestern will be busy- reflection and inquiry are necessary parts of the experience. Who do you want to be as an artist? What's important to you? What brings you joy? What are your responsibilities, to yourself and to others? These are not questions to answer Freshman Year. But they are questions to get in the practice of asking. Our interaction with the field will take four main forms: Lectures and interactions with the class instructor and Guests; seeing theatre events as a cohort, online reading and research, and weekly discussion sections. Weekly reflection papers will be a space for you to discover connections between these investigations and your own values and interests.
