Follow in the footsteps of famous authors and learn to capture a strong sense of place in your own creative work as you write your way through Dublin and London.  Students will explore the areas and landmarks featured in British and Irish literature from the past to the present day and understand how setting functions as a dynamic and interactive element stratified by complex layers of history, culture, and artistic representation.  Taking a geocritical approach to the urban environment, students will then apply what they learn to create their own short works of either poetry, fiction, or nonfiction.  Travel will include walking and/or biking tours through London and Dublin, a journey along the River Thames, a train ride through the English and Welsh countryside as well as a voyage across the Irish Sea.  This course is open to all majors.
