Program Description:
3 weeks, 6 credits

In this three-week summer course, students immerse themselves in the annual Theater and Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, attend performances, and, time permitting, tour the Scottish Highlands. Seminar discussions trace the historical lineage of the festival, including Greek religious celebrations, medieval pageant plays, Elizabethan and Restoration theatrical events, and the 20th-century avant-garde and contemporary world theater. Students read plays and critical texts, with the option of working on a classical monologue and/or a piece of creative writing. Students also keep a detailed journal including responses to required and suggested readings and discussions, write their own reviews and personal impressions of performances, document their research on their classical monologues and/or creative writing, and keep notes about the historic and cultural sites that we visit. 

Prerequisites: 3.0 minimum GPA and at least sophomore status by the start of the program. For further information on the content of the program, please contact Professor Cecilia Rubino (
