London in Times of Crisis and Change
ENGL 259, Literature and Social Difference,
VLPA, DIV, W credit available byarrangement,
5 cr. Peter Buckroyd, William Streitberger
Great Britain, like many of its European neighbors, has had its fair share of crisis and change. Reading about it is one thing. Visiting the sites where the change took place is an invaluable addition to understanding the past and, in part, the present. We’ll begin with Shakespeare’s age and end with Brexit. In each of the four weeks there will be a discussion of the week’s reading in the classroom before our site visits which are designed to complement and bring the readings to life. The goal of this course is to help students becomes more informed about the great crises in London’s culture and their effect in shaping modern London
