Here’s our new recruitment video for Gender, Race, & Class in London Fall 2022

In the Fall 2021 Gender, Race, and Class in London program, students took Law & Order UK: British Murder Mysteries and Crime Dramas. For this course, students learned to apply the lenses of critical race feminisms to written and visual texts. Each week, they watched a different British crime drama and visited sites in London and beyond related to the week’s topics. They also read and discussed a number of British mystery novels, including Agatha Christie’s At Bertram’s Hotel and A. A. Dhand’s One Way Out. Their final project was to create a murder book documenting what they did and learned across the semester.

For Fall 2022, Gender, Race, and Class in London will offer the mysteries and crime dramas course again, along with Law & Order UK: The Sociology of Crime & Punishment. Any student in a US college or university can participate.

Bobby explains why ecampus students should participate in study abroad.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from your safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

–Mark Twain–
