Obiettivi Formativi

This course explores twenty-first century British culture focusing on three major topics: feminism, identity and crisis.

Students will examine how the aforementioned key themes have impacted on British society and have shaped the meaning of the word ‘British’ today through analysing the plays of contemporary women playwrights. These texts will be studied and discussed in dialogue with a selection of critical literature on feminism, theatre and cultural studies, as well as with films, newspaper articles and fundamental past literary works. 

The course aims at providing students with the theoretical and methodological tools to understand and comment on key issues pertaining to twenty-first century British culture, and identify how they are presented and debated in contemporary texts. Linking theory with empirical work, the course also aims at developing critical thinking skills and promoting autonomous judgment.
