Lehigh in London is a four-week Summer Program designed to integrate the dynamic urban space of London into six credits of Humanities coursework. Students will take ENGL 195, Literary London, and ENGL 395, Nineteenth-Century Visual Culture (see below for course descriptions). The literary and academic work will be complemented by engaging many of the sites and scenes of these narratives as we attempt to understand the cultural context of the stories. We will make regular visits to prominent museums and galleries, including the British Library, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Royal Geographic Society, the Wellcome Trust, the Tate Modern, the National Gallery, and the National Portrait Gallery
All members of the London Study Abroad program will receive an iPad to use during the month-long trip as part of our coursework. This technology will be particularly important to our study of visual texts, including photography and cinema, and we will also use the iPads to help engage and study the geography, urban planning, and architecture of London.
ENGL 195: Literary London (3 credits)
ENGL 195 provides a careful study of the literary representation of London from the middle of the eighteenth century to the present. We will devote specific attention to the development of London as a site of cultural exchange, racial and class diversity, and social development. The course will consider numerous literary works based around the geography, architecture, landscape, and art of London; we will study works by Virginia Woolf, Joseph Conrad, Charles Dickens, T.S. Eliot, Amy Levy, and Ella Hepworth Dixon
ENGL 395: British Visual Culture, 1750-the present (3 credits)
ENGL 395 will provide focused examination of nineteenth-century visual culture from the emergence of photography to the rise of cinema. We will explore the interrelationships between various visual forms of photography, painting, and cinema, and consider how these visual media create meaning, impact political ideas, and contribute to cultural developments and movements such as imperialism, scientific innovation, and racial and class diversity.
