HONR 300C General Honors Seminar Performance in                   3 credits

(PermReq) Grade  Method: REG/P-F As anthropologists,
          semanticists,  and theatrical artists have
          explored   the   notion  of  "performance"
          through   academic  discourse  and  public
          presentation,    what    is   thought   to
          constitute  "performance" has moved beyond
          the limits of the stage and the screen(s),
          into  the  stadiums and  onto the streets.
          After  researching and  discussing aspects
          of   performance   theory,  students  will
          attend  a  variety  of events  and visit a
          number of sites in Baltimore, all of which
          incorporate     various     aspects     of
          performance.  Students  will  be  asked to
          write about and discuss their responses to
          these  various performance experiences, as
          well  as  to complete a  project in which,
          individually  or as a group, they create a
          performance of their own.

          times  through  the modern.  Students will
          evolve  definitions  of the  hero as those

          and change in others. The readings will be
