About ENGS 193 TR1

Join us in London to study British drama and literature. We will see several plays and read literature set in London. We will visit the reconstructed Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, a range of 19th and early 20th century playhouses, and the latest theatrical venues in London. Our exploration of London will also include visits to museums and places that have been represented in London literature. Our goal will be to study the intersections between theatrical and literary London and the London we will be visiting. The London play schedule hasn’t been released yet, so the plays we will be seeing have yet to be determined. This course will include two weeks (and three weekends) in London.

Section Description

This course will include two weeks of travel around London during which we will see several plays and read novels set in London. We will visit the reconstructed Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and a range of other playhouses. Our exploration of London will also include visits to places that have been represented in London literature. Our goal is both to explore the London stage—the plays that have been historically and are currently performed in London—and to consider a range of literature set in London. What is the relationship of drama, poetry, and fiction to the place that it is performed in or that it represents? How has London changed from the Elizabethan period (late 16th and early 17th century) to the 21st century? We will also take some day trips outside of London.
