UMD's Bill Payne to Team-Teach with NYT Theatre Critic Ben Brantley

UMD is partnering with The New York Times by offering an online class, "Theater and Global Change", from May 12 – June 8, 2011. The two-part course includes live online sessions running from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, 19, 26 and June 2, with one Monday class on June 6. The cost for the spring course is $175. The second course will take place in the fall.

Associate professor of theatre and interim dean of UMD's School of Fine Arts, Bill Payne, will team-teach the course with Ben Brantley, the chief theater critic of The New York Times.

Guest speakers include theatre director and activist Margarita Espada of Teatro Yerbabruja and Dr. Martin Shapiro, Professor of Psychology at California State University-Fresno.

This course is for students interested in theatre, global change, and how artistic creation can help us understand and respond to these changes. In conjunction, students will study the Seven Revolutions (changes in Population, Resource Management, Technology, Information Flow, Economic Integration, Conflict, and Governance).

A key component of the two-part course is to generate awareness that will lead to positive action through the appreciation of artistic creation.
