About

This course is an opportunity for students of all majors to read and discuss some of England’s most admired writers while resident in the British Midlands at Harlaxton Manor, a 100-room nineteenth-century manor house owned and operated by the University of Evansville as its British campus. Regular class meetings will be devoted to close reading of the assigned material and placement of it in socio-historical context. Supplementary weekly visits to literary sites will give students the opportunity to experience firsthand the landscapes that the assigned writers have made famous. Writers include Jane Austen, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Emily Bronte, Thomas Hardy, and Virginia Woolf. Students will see a Shakespeare play at London’s new Globe Theatre, as well as visit sites of cultural importance, such as the National Portrait Gallery, the Tate Gallery, Poet’s Corner at Westminster Abbey, and St. Paul’s. Students will also have ample opportunity to travel on weekends to sites of their own choice.
