Deadline Extended: Study Abroad in London and Dublin

The London and Dublin: Travel, Heritage, and History program during December Intersession examines the heritage, public history and travel narratives of both cities. These two cities are irrevocably entwined historically, in material culture and in public memory. This continued connection can still be seen today in the difficulty of constructing BREXIT and the ongoing connections between the UK and Ireland.

The deadline has been extended to June 15, 2020. Apply on the Study Abroad application portal here.

 

HIST 269/398: Intro to Public History Name

ENG 272/379: Travel Literature and the Construction of Meaning

The two separate courses share a common focus on understanding how individuals interpret their encounters with the other and the past. In particular, we will address the nature of heritage in the context of class and colonization. The History course looks specifically at how the past is remembered in public venues like museums and historic sites, and how history museums shape how we understand past. The travel writer consumes these interpretations of the public space and provide a window into how individuals and societies have constructed meanings and images of themselves and others through cultural contact with the past meanings of place and personal identities. London and Dublin are ideal sites for interrogating these issues.
