Greek and Roman Comedy Course Enhancement Project
February 18, 2014
Theatre Professor Leah Roy worked with three student actors from the Theatre Department to prepare a reading from a scene of a comedy of Aristophanes. The students did a reading at a class meeting of Ted Gellar-Goad’s course Greek and Roman Comedy, and then led a class discussion. Since all the literary works covered in this course are plays—and especially since the students in Greek and Roman Comedy are themselves staging scenes from Greek and Roman Comedy for public performance—seeing a scene prepared by trained actors and then discussing issues of interpretation, staging, and performance with them will be a major aid for student learning & achievement in the course.
