  • “The Magic of Archival Research” in Cornwall, England
    ENGL670 with Dr. Michele Tarter
    June 28 – July 12, 2014

Would you like to travel back in time to the legends of King Arthur & the Knights of the Round Table?  Or have class in Merlin’s Cave?  Walk in medieval Druid forests and visit stone circles and holy wells?  And, most importantly, conduct archival research in the Museum of Witchcraft, learning about the earliest healers and spells and magic?  Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime class in Cornwall, England this summer!

See these 2 great videos of our class in Cornwall:

We will live in a Bed & Breakfast, eat delicious full Cornish breakfasts each morning, and visit some of the most beautiful sites in all the world! This is a great study opportunity for anyone interested in doing archival research, completing history or literature honors thesis projects, or for graduate students working on groundbreaking research and publication projects.

For more information, see the TCNJ Center for Global Engagement’s spotlight on the Cornwall trip.

  • “Literary Landscapes” in Transylvania & England
    ENGL670 with Dr. Michele Tarter
    June 8 – June 29, 2014

Are you fascinated by vampires?  Have you ever dared to go to Transylvania?  Come with us to Transylvania and follow the Literary Footsteps of Dracula!

We will fly to Bucharest, Transylvania and spend 8 days following Dracula’s literary trail:
we’ll stay in his magnificent castle on the Borgo Pass, visit ancient monasteries and fortresses, eat vampire menus by candlelight and hear legendary tales around campfires!

Then we’ll fly to London and go directly to Whitby, a quaint seaside fishing village where author Bram Stoker once lived, and see where Dracula entered England.

Next we’ll go and live in Harlaxton– the British castle we call “home.”  We’ll do many wonderful things there, including a High Tea, a formal Ball, and a trip to Charlotte Bronte’s home and misty moors (after reading  Jane Eyre).

Our 3-week study abroad class will culminate in Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon, where we will stay and see 2 plays, in addition to visiting the bard’s home and favorite haunts.

There are only 20 spots in this class, so sign up now at The Center for Global Engagement, Green Hall 111.

Please see flyer for more information and join us for a once-in-a-lifetime literary adventure!

 

Information sessions for both courses will be held on
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2013
from 12:00-1:00 pm in Bliss 153

If you have any questions about either course, please contact:
Dr. Michele Tarter (tarter@tcnj.edu)
