A study abroad experience that includes one solid month in London and Edinburgh, multiple day trips and outings, opportunities to explore Britain and Europe independently, 6 credits toward the English major or minor, and fulfills requirements for Honors Immersed and a Colloquium requirement.
In British Gothic Literature, we will discuss how British culture uses Gothic monsters to express fears, anxieties, and misgivings about gender & sexuality, nation & empire, race & class. We will read works by Jane Austen, Emily Brontë, R. L. Stevenson, Oscar Wilde, and Arthur Conan Doyle. We will explore the gloomy moors and dark city streets where they set their stories. We will visit art museums, attend the theater, stroll through urban graveyards, and walk down village lanes. For a full reading list and list of activities, check out the program flier.
