Course contents

The Fundamentals of Theatrology Research 2 course directly continues the so named course from the previous semester and equips the student with further essential professional knowledge and skills necessary for their further theatrology practice in higher-institutional learning (including academic publication), and subsequent practice.

Students, under the guidance of the instructor, independently execute further steps in their own basic theatrological research which in the second part of the semester culminates with the writing of a longer-length field study (approx. 15 pgs), using previous research, acquired material, their analysis, commentary and other writing outputs. In class discussion, results of work are commented on, students learn to present their work, mutually critique, argue and defend.

Topic range:

  1. Characterization of directing and stage interpretation.
  2. List of music, choreography and other elements of a stage piece.
  3. Theatre staging in the context of the period of its creation.
  4. Theatrology research methods.
  5. Formulation of hypotheses and their testing.
  6. Basic structure of a professional paper
  7. Discussion on selected professional texts.
  8. Presentation of professional work.
  9. Argument and Defense of professional work.
