Class Notes

London travel course. Application and $450 deposit due by March 1, see https://rce.csuchico.edu/passport for details. Focusing on Britain from Shakespeare to the Present, this course explores the history of Britain through its arts and ideas ? literary, visual, architectural, and theatrical in person. We will begin at Hampton Court Palace where students will experience Tudor social, political and cultural history by viewing outstanding examples of art, architecture, and interior/landscape design. Then, we will see a performance at Shakespeare?s reconstructed Globe Theatre (having already read the play). We will tour Middle Temple Hall, studying the Tudor architecture and history of the legal profession, and discuss the Baroque, Classicism, and Romanticism at Saint Paul?s and Tate Britain. Students will hen experience the massive impact of exploration and science at the Whitby (Captain Cook) in Yorkshire, and the Old Operating Theatre and Freud Museum in London. Then, as there is no substitute for visiting works of art in person, we will spend an entire day at the National Gallery, focusing especially on nineteenth century art before reading and tracing the footsteps of the Bloomsbury Group and watching a contemporary West End play and more. Requires additional enrollment in HIST 313.
