What I'm teaching this week

In the drama course, David Garrick's "The Jubilee," a bizarre and wonderful musical entertainment in which Garrick transformed the humiliating debacle of the Shakespeare Jubilee at Stratford (the Millennium Dome of the 1760s, so to speak) into a huge success at Drury Lane, plus miscellaneous stuff on acting styles in the 18th century by Joseph Roach and others; in the culture seminar, Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman and criticism by Donna Haraway and some provocative (read nightmarish?) pieces on gender and evolutionary psychology by Steven Pinker and Robert Wright.
