Art

Art & Landscape in London
Course Description: Throughout history, artists have looked to the landscape to consider essential questions about humankind’s place and role in the world. These questions still resonate today but take on new meaning in a 21st century world facing a global environmental crisis and the widespread displacement of groups fleeing war and violence. Art & Landscape in London will involve students in important dialogues on changing attitudes about the natural landscape, our role in the environment, and how notions of landscape and place inform identity.
 
TBA | 3 Cr. Hrs. | U

Theatre / English Language and Literature

Theatre on Location: Classics to Contemporary
Course Description: Discover the thrilling world of London and explore English culture through professional theatre. Students will experience a diverse range of current productions from the classics to the cutting edge; we will examine cultural trends and social issues through the lens of the theatre. The influence of English history will come alive as students visit theatres, museums, historic sites (e.g., Stratford on Avon, the National Theatre, the Globe Theatre, Westminster Abbey, and more), and attend 4-5 notable and dynamic theatre productions. Group discussions will be a vital part of class time in London and guests from the field will visit the class on location.
