Best Professor

Roberta Barker

Barker teaches three excellent-sounding courses this year, on top of being the chair of the Dalhousie University theatre department. At King's she teaches a third-year course, Opera & The Idea of Enlightenment, looking at opera from the 17th through the 20th century. Then there's Modern Theatre, another third year course. New this year, Dramatic Theories in Practice: From Melodrama to Realism, which explores the two theatrical styles in 19th century European theatre, "to see how they worked and how they apply to popular culture."

Silver: Stephen Kimber
