SUMMER TRAVEL STUDY

London, England: Romanticism and the Age of Revolution

Discover the contemporary capital and recover hidden traces of the revolutionary era of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The program studies London as the key site in an often overlooked urban Romanticism, featuring the work of William Wordsworth, Mary Wollstonecraft, John Keats, Hannah More, Mary Robinson, and a special focus on the art and poetry of William Blake.

SUMMER TRAVEL STUDY

Florence, Italy: American Writers and Artists Abroad

Trace the steps of some of the most important American writers and artists who spent time in Florence. Novels and stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Julia Ward Howe, Henry James, William Dean Howells, and Constance Fenimore Woolson are studied, along with the American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s great translation of the Florentine poet Dante’s Inferno.

SUMMER TRAVEL STUDY

Students will be immersed in the study of multiple plays in performance, as mounted both on the Royal Shakespeare Company, and the Globe Theater in Southwark, London.
