Writers in Paris (June 26-July 25, 2020) students choose to focus on poetry, fiction, or creative nonfiction, and attend daily writing workshops, craft seminars, and literary readings and events. Writing and reading assignments are designed to encourage immersion in the city. For example, poets might visit the Louvre to write ekphrastic poems or create Parisian street sonnets by taking a 14-block walk of the St. Denis area, where François Villon lived, and generating a line of poetry per block. Fiction writers might study dialogue by listening for overheard speech at a sidewalk café or learn about description and setting by writing a story set in the neighborhood where Hemingway lived and worked.

Join Profs. Paul Booth and Rebecca Johns-Trissler for a unique Study Abroad trip: Harry Potter and the Fan Experience!
The Harry Potter story is more than just a wildly popular children’s book series, it is an international phenomenon encompassing literature, film, drama, multimedia experiences, and fan culture. Taking unique advantage of two 4-credit DePaul courses — ENG 286 (Topics in Popular Literature) and MCS 363 (Topics in Fan Studies) — students in this short-term study abroad program will have the opportunity to delve deeply into the Harry Potter experience through readings, screenings, discussions, and in-person visits to sites of literary and cultural significance related to the Harry Potter series.
This short-term study abroad program will focus on sites that influenced the writing of the Harry Potter novels and the filming of the series—including visits to the Warner Bros. Studios in London and a performance of The Cursed Child in the West End—to enhance students’ understanding of the themes and issues of the story as well as the experience of Harry Potter fandom in general.
• The program fulfills two graduation requirements: A&L credit and experiential learning credit
• The courses will meet Monday nights in the Loop during Spring quarter
• Travel dates are 6/15-6/26
• The deadline to apply is February 1
