This subject studies the relationships between modernism, postmodernism and the major dramatic genres of the last 120 years so that students will be closely familiar with the main codes and conventions that constitute the mainstream of the modern and postmodern paradigms of theatre, film and television. The unit explores contemporary theories of performance and narrative and identifies the problems involved in thinking of genre across a variety of dramatic mediums. It will also examine the political and cultural dimensions of performance in contemporary culture.
