Day 25: Introduction to Drama as Form

2. Mediascapes & Postmodernism (2 mins)
3. Group Questions (10 mins)
4. Discussion (15 mins)
How do gender relations figure into Valparaiso, especially in the character of Livia (what she says/how she acts, etc.)?
What "mediascape" or "scapes" is Valparaiso centered around? How might Valparaiso be critiquing this mediascape, and what does this do in relation to our past discussions on the role of media in contemporary life?
3. Form + Content:
How does repetition operate in Valparaiso, especially in relation to how we saw repetition in Green Grass, Running Water?
How is "place" represented in the narrative in Valparaiso? What might the "confusion" say about space and place in the late twentieth-century?
What is the significant of stories and of representation as such through narrative in the development of Valparaiso? How do Michael's "revisions" speak to this significance?
Started reading the play more closely

Novelist, playwright, essayist, etc.
Associated with American postmodernism

"Mediascapes refer both to the distribution of the electronic capabilities to produce and disseminate information (newspapers, magazines, television stations, and film-production studios), which are now available to a growing number of private and public interests throughout the world, and to the images of the world created by these media. These images involve many complicated inflections, depending on their mode (documentary or entertainment), their hardware (electronic or preelectronic), their audiences (local, national, or transnational), and the interests of those who own and control them. "
