We will visit Stonehenge and the medieval Salisbury Cathedral and Stratford upon Avon, as well. Students will explore the cultural and historical contexts out of which London’s global significance in humanistic inquiry developed and in which it continues to thrive. Students also will incorporate experiential learning into course assignments, moving beyond the classroom and into the living present through walking tours, independent research, theater, public lectures, and national archives.
