"As we held class discussions and went on tours that brought texts to life in new ways, however, we got to see many students’ opinions shift. Students who found Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway confusing and frustrating when reading it alone suddenly felt a stronger connection with the text when studying it in Virginia Woolf’s former drawing room, surrounded by her sister’s artwork, learning about her life experiences and how they might have played into the novel.” - Katy, Spring Break 2015

This course will focus on British women writers from the Victorian period to the present. We’ll examine the changing status of women, the static status of women, and the specific cultural concerns of British women. We’ll situate the poems, short stories, and novels we read in their historical and cultural context by visiting many of London’s most famous attractions such as the British Museum and Westminster Abbey. But we’ll also explore less famous sites such as Wilton’s Music Hall (a Victorian pub and music hall) and the Geffrye Museum (English furnishing and room décor from the 1500s to the turn of the 20th century). In addition, we’ll take literary walking tours around the city of London and see a play in London’s famous West End theater district.
Participants will stay in a comfortable, double-occupancy hotel in the Kensington section of London. http://www.thenadler.com/kensington.
