Literary London

Live and study in London this IAP

This new class will explore the locations, history and artistic institutions that have made London a world cultural hub.  Through guided readings, theater performances, walking tours and visits to sites associated with major authors, students will experience the vibrancy of London’s past and present.  In addition to contextualizing works that have become classics around the globe, students will consider how contemporary writers and filmmakers have transformed English literature.  They will bring their collective mapping of literary London back home, to enrich MIT’s Literature community.
