You will have access to unique workplace networks in inner London through the work placement option and outward-facing modules. Students often undertake both paid and voluntary opportunities to enhance their career profile. In the third year, you will develop your own independent research and produce practical projects that can be a launching pad for your future career. The study of each particular performance, company, play or practice will be contextualised within the political and social issues of its time period. In this way you will gain a sense of the rich diversity of theatrical responses to major events of the time period. In addition, you will engage in readings and activities that further their understanding of theatre history as an academic practice.
- This module looks at playwrights and other theatre-makers both from France and from Africa, the Caribbean and Canada who tackle France’s colonial past, and its postcolonial present.
