Program Description:

Travel Dates - March 8 - March 15, 2019 (spring break) 
Number of students on program:  10 students

Discover how the Gothic was born out of the English environment by visiting London—home of Dracula and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde—and the gothic medieval city of York, surrounded by the Moors of Wuthering Heights. The course begins stateside, with six weeks of coursework discussing literature situated in and born out of these English cities. Then, travel with the class to England over spring break to examine the Gothic elements of these two cities firsthand and study the historical traditions that gave birth to 19th-century Gothic literature. Literary Cities: Gothic Cities (0122-252) is a 3-credit course open to all majors and fulfills one General Education Humanities and Global requirement.
