CHUMS 5002 Travel Study London: Shakespeare's Progeny

Students in this course will acquire a broad based understand of the relationship between London, Stratford, Bath and their playwrights, their writers, and the theatre. With a focus on Shakespeare, Sheridan, Austen, Dickens, and Buchan, students will visit historical sites, theatres, and museums important to Shakespeare's texts; attend performances (including that of the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford). A critical journal will allow reflection on the variety of course experiences; an in-depth research project will allow extensive examination of a critical problem presented by one aspect of the course.
