Fall 2020 Courses
See the plays, meet the artists, take a role! We’ll follow Shakespeare across the stages, campuses, and archives of Philadelphia, and we’ll do a weekend field trip to historic Staunton, Virginia, to see plays at the American Shakespeare Center.
What stories can a city relate? What historical clues might we find within and beneath urban streets? Whose pasts might we uncover? Using Philadelphia as our guide, this course explores the American nation’s layered pasts.
Have a new common intellectual experience, but this time experience all Philadelphia has to offer when it comes to arts and culture. Engage with the histories of iconic institutions including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia Orchestra, Pennsylvania Ballet, The Academy of Music, and the African American Museum.
