Courses for ERASMUS and other international students

Modern Czech Theatre

The Department of Theatre Studies annually (usually in the Spring Semester) offers a course designed for Erasmus students called Modern Czech Theatre. This course, covering a wide range of topics and aspects of 20th century Czech theatre within the context of Czech history, is taught in English by a number of specialists.

Other Options
The Department of Theatre Studies has traditionally put an emphasis on exchanging ideas and cultivating relations within the international academic community. Among those activities are international symposiums held at the Department; outstanding scholars in the field of theatre studies and related areas are regularly invited to come and present their work and teach special courses.

Erasmus and other international students are strongly encouraged to benefit from the rich international network, join the international events and enroll in special courses offered at the Department of Theatre Studies several times a year. In 2012 it was Prof. Manfred Pfister (Shakespeare Intermedial: Romeo and Julie and the Sonnets), prof. Christian Billing (Post-Millenial Shakespeare on Film: Interpretation, Adaptation and Appropriation) and prof. Platon Mavromoustakos. The most recent special course for Spring 2013 was prof. Yana Meerzon’s Theatre in Exile.

Even though regular courses offered at the Department of Theater Studies are taught in Czech, most of the faculty and lecturers can speak English or/and other non-Czech languages and can offer an independent study based on their regular courses and research interests.
