CLL 154 - Doubles, Doppelgängers and Masks in Venice and Japan

Semester Hours: 3


Venice and Japan are known for their masks–Carnival masks and Noh masks, respectively.  This course covers the various ways that masks are employed in Venice and Japan to draw links between the practices of masking and the structure of society.  The course will include investigations into the history of masking in Venice, which extends far beyond the masks of carnival, concepts of “face” and unmasking in Japan, carnival, commedia dell’arte, noh, and bunraku. Our exploration of masking cultures will help us to understand the varieties of masking that can be found.
