(Formerly HNRS320) - This Honors course examines the ethics and values of diverse cultures through the way they use representation in the realm of performance. The course looks at the ways that performances relate to the ethics and values of diverse communities throughout history and geography, from ancient Greece to the present, from the Americas to Europe to Asia. Students will focus on the relationships between performance and spectators and the-ethical implications and provocations of performance such as the staging of violence, the representation of character, and the relationship of storytelling to global and local power structures and hierarchies. We will read philosophical, theoretical and historical material, attend and create performances, and study plays and other historical artifacts to examine the specific ethical issues that theatrical performances engender.
