Courses

Texts and Contexts: Tragedy and Comedy
Session III, June 24, 25 and July 22, 23
Lincoln Center: 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.

Drama offers us a way to examine our lives, ask questions and, sometimes, find answers. In both tragedy and comedy, as in life, choices are required of individuals and society. Choices offer hope -- good choices offer happiness. Through a close examination of dramas and their historical contexts, we'll explore the choices and results that have been presented on page, stage, and film in both tragedy and comedy. We'll also explore the ways in which drama impacts us as individuals and as a society. Fulfills the EP 2 requirement in Fordham's core curriculum.
