CORE COURSE 

Sense of Place in European Literature, A 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Literature opens up for known and unknown places, real and imaginary. In this course, discover comparative perspectives on European literature through in-depth analysis and close readings of texts written by modern and classic writers. On our short Study Tour, we seek out the literary voices of Copenhagen and the island of Fanø in the North Sea. On the week-long Study Tour to Berlin, we read literature on-site, originally written in and about this important metropolis, to explore how the city influences our reading, and vice versa.
Week-Long Study Tour: Berlin  
Core Course Week: Denmark
