Teaching method

Each student will have to present in class a review of a theoretical study. Students also must present their research, including preparation of audiovisual materials, introducing diverse cases and different perspectives on topics, authors and films of one or more performing arts.
Meetings with artists as well as with pos-doctoral researchers developing work that might be relevant for the students of this course will be promoted, bearing in mind that the very methods to be used must be flexible, according to the projects they are carrying on.

Evaluation method

Evaluation includes taking part in the discussions on the supporting texts and making a research project, in three steps: presentation of a written project; oral presentation in the classroom, followed by discussion; final written paper.
Reading and general theoretical research: 20%;
Critical review: 20%;
Oral presentation of original research: 20%;
Written paper: 40%.
