About the Course: Study Abroad Version

This is an advanced course in the novels of Virginia Woolf taught through a 9-day trip to England to visit sites associated with Woolf's life and work.  This version of the course will be offered for the first time in summer 2004, on the 10-week semester, but there will be no regular class meetings except for the 9-day trip.  Lectures will be posted on this website, and discussion will be handled through a subscription e-list before and after the trip.  Seminar papers will be due in late July (date TBA). Students may enroll for graduate credit (EH 649) or undergraduate credit (EH 540).
