Inside the London Theater

Experience the range and breadth of London theater: from well-known titles to lesser-known discoveries, the tried-and-true to the comparatively untested, musical theater to Shakespeare. You’ll learn how to see theater and to read and write about it. A willingness to immerse yourself in London’s critical culture and the spectrum of live performance is helpful and expected. Along with lectures and discussions, you’ll get up-front, firsthand meetings with key players in the London theater circuit—directors, producers, performers, and more—who will enhance your understanding of how theater productions and projects develop from the page to the stage. Past guests include a mixture of Oscar and Tony winners and nominees ranging from composer Alan Menken (Sister Act) to musicals performer Gavin Creel (The Book of Mormon), leading British actress Lia Williams (Oresteia, Skylight) to Downton Abbey star Charles Edwards (Blithe Spirit).

Literacy, Inclusion, and Diversity in Italy

Italy is widely known as having some of the most progressive legal policies supporting inclusive practice including an over 30-year tradition of educating students with disabilities in general education classrooms. Inclusion in Italy is based on the principle that the integration of people with disabilities is a positive force in the classroom, because it offers all students opportunities to develop new understandings and knowledge. Disability, therefore, is considered a point of strength, rather than a problem. Italy also boasts a public education and basic literacy level of nearly 97%, which is quite remarkable, although international comparisons of test scores place Italy much closer to the U.S. in other areas. Today, Italy is experiencing a new wave of immigration as well as the effects of a widespread downturn in the economy. Disability studies, as a field of inquiry, is beginning to emerge in Italy. Thus, the implementation and meanings of integration (or inclusion) take on new meanings in the midst of these changes, making this a very significant time to be studying and observing inclusion and literacy instruction in Italy.
