I’ll be taking three courses during my time there. One goes by the title of “Spooks and Spies,” and is a history course on the 20th century British and American¬†Intelligence¬†communities. The second is on the Bloomsbury Group, I highly influential piece of 20th century British culture, including such notables as Virginia Woolf, E. M. Forster and J.M. Keynes. The final course is an examination of Shakespeare, reading several of his plays. At this point though, I am more excited and prepared for the “abroad” part rather than the “study” part. This program includes a four day trip to Edinburgh and a day trip to London. I am very hopeful that I can work a weekend trip to Switzerland into my itinerary.
