"Having the power of a giant is wonderful. To use them like a giant is tyranny. " William Shakespeare

With this special seminar concept for executives, which comes directly from the theater business, you profit from the decades-long activity of our trainer Markus Kopf, who works as a theater director, actor and lecturer for acting in Germany and Europe.

What appeals to you, a - supposedly - to get to know completely new professional field, contains an astonishing number of parallels to your professional everyday life in leadership positions. From Henry V to Titus Andronicus, Richard III. to Antony and Cleopatra, Hamlet to Macbeth - Shakespeare has analyzed and mapped the psyches of some of the most complex, dynamic and fascinating personalities. Hardly any author has thought so much about leadership and power as the English poet laureate.

Please be aware, you must enroll as a full time student at The American College of Norway and that means that you must study 5 of our courses (Totaling 15 credit). We will communicate with you to discuss which of our other courses you would like to include.

The course will explore Graphic Narratives as genre, covering broad themes of Fantasy, Magic Realism, and Feminism.

First, we will explore the different forms that Graphic Narratives take, including books and web comics, alongside how they differ from super-hero comics and Japanese manga. During this time, we will also discuss how reading and interpreting images affects our understanding of the texts.

After discussing Graphic Narratives as a genre, we will read several examples that touch on themes of Fantasy & Magical Realism, each with a unique and distinctly feminine perspective. Students will consider topics such as how Fantasy and Popular Culture influence our everyday lives, how authors portray women in this genre, and how the genre of Graphic Narratives informs our conversations and thinking about these topics....

The study of classical civilisation is understandably a wide-ranging and far-reaching one encompassing a variety of subjects; history, literature, linguistics, numismatics, epigraphy, archaeology, art, architecture and philosophy. Classical civilisation is the term applied to the civilisations of Greece and Rome.

In terms of a time scale, Classical Greece is usually considered to be the 5th and 4th centuries, specifically the period between the end of the Persian Wars to the death of Alexander the Great: 479-323 BC. The Roman period is more difficult to pin down to specific dates. Most universities will start with the beginnings of Roman expansion into Italy in the early 5th century and run to Alaric’s sack of Rome in 410 AD. This course is designed to allow you to study at your own pace and is designed to develop an interest and understanding of Classical Civilisation.... [-]
