beyond joking. - the serious comedy:

das bürgerliche lustspiel (of the 19th century).


a follow-up to last semester's course: das bürgerliche trauerspiel.


attendance of this preceeding course is neither a requirement nor is it necessary for the understanding of the current course. all the corresponding handouts and records are still accessible in the base.

Examination Modalities

in addition to consistent and active participation in the course, students need to independently prepare and present a paper (incl handout) on a play (definite allocation of  topics during the kick-off meeting). they also need to submit their own first sketches and ideas to realize a staging of this play in 2021.



until further notice the course will continue in distance-mode, i.e. it will be held in zoom-format as before. the appropriate invitation links will be sent to the registered course participants in due course.
