Class Notes

London Travel Course: Application and deposit required, visit rce.csuchico.edu/passport. Registration in this course is required, then student has the option of choosing ENGL 441W or 446 for a total of 6 units. This course is an on-sight faculty-led study trip to England. The purpose of the course is to bring students to see as many of the remarkable works of medieval art and architecture in and around London as possible in one month. There is no substitute for viewing works in person. All assignments will be based on first-hand observations of works. We will view manuscripts in the British Library, arms and armor, delicate ivories, and gold sculptures in the British Museum, and paintings in the National Gallery. We will visit Westminster Abbey, St Bartholomew-the-Great, Temple Church, Southwark Cathedral, and the great Guildhall, and we'll stroll along Chaucer's Walk to Work viewing all the medieval remainders along the way. We'll dig for artifacts on the banks of the Thames River, and we will see a play at the Globe Theater. We'll take a side trip to Cambridge, where we'll have exclusive access to manuscripts in the Parker Library, Corpus Christi College, and Trinity College Library. We'll hear the choir sing medieval songs in King's College Chapel. We will visit the Round Church to see the green men, and will have tea and scones across from St Bene't's, the only surviving Saxon structure in the city.
