Bring your studies to life this summer in London and Glasgow. London has always played a central role in the life of Great Britain, in its politics, its economy, and its imagination. From the opening of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales at the Tabard Inn to the multicultural North London of Zadie Smith’s White Teeth, it is difficult to find an important English author who does not turn to London, celebrating it, satirizing it, or simply trying to grasp its wondrous complexity. For English majors and non-majors interested in the arts, culture, and diversity, London offers an unparalleled place to study literature and culture, both for its rich history and its contemporary vibrance as one of the truly global cities of the world. It is particularly rich in theater, from the National Theatre to the Globe to smaller, cutting edge companies. The program is designed to make the best use of London and Glasgow, with classes meeting regularly on-site in each city. Students enroll two of the four courses for a total of six credits.
