Term: Summer I

Courses:

  • COMM 3306 – International Communication Abroad
  • INTL 4944 – Dialogue of Civilization – Globalization and Social Sciences

 

The London Dialogue of civilization has two main focuses for students. First, to familiarize students with the people and the culture of England and the British Empire, with an emphasis on the city of London and its vast history.  Second, to interact with local citizens to produce and edit a 10-12 minute documentary on a subject of their choice (which will be proposed in the Spring of 2014).

Students will attend lectures about the culture and history of England in many of the key sights in London and the country. These sites include: The Tower of London, Windsor Castle, Hampton Court Palace, Westminster Abbey, Museum of London, Victoria and Albert Museum, HMS Belfast, Imperial War Museum (London and Duxford), and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. We will also visit Edinburgh, Scotland to discover the close connection between the two cities visiting Edinburgh Castle, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

During the dialogue, students will maintain a blog documenting their learning experience, and they will also write extensive reaction papers on two topics associated with the lectures or places from our travels. They will also work in groups to produce a documentary, which will include: location scouting, proposal writing, script writing, filming, and editing.

Experience in media production is not a requirement but students must have enthusiasm to explore another culture and to experience first hand how theory can provide a deeper, more complex understanding of British culture and history.

Summer Multi-Country Programs


OXFORD: Arcadia

Traditional | Oxford, England

Study Abroad Coordinator: Daisy Biddle (d.biddle@neu.edu)

At the core of an Oxford education is the tutorial system, where students meet one-on-one or in small groups with a subject tutor who will provide constructive guidance and feedback on your intellectual journey. In most cases, Oxford students focus on one particular subject (like biochemistry or modern history) without general or elective study in subjects outside their specialty. Students meet with tutors and attend lectures for eight weeks a term during three, ten-week terms a year. During the long breaks between teaching terms, students consolidate and extend their reading and work in a subject. You and your principal tutor will decide on your major and minor tutorial concentrations for that term. For instance, a student in English may be directed to focus on Shakespeare's tragedies and 19th-century women's writing. Additionally, your principal tutor will appoint some of his or her colleagues to supervise your tutorials in each area. You will meet these tutors on a weekly or bi-weekly basis over the term. You can expect your principal tutor to assign readings, lectures, practical laboratory work, and a topic for you to prepare and present, often in the form of a tutorial essay. These essays, based on extensive independent reading, are concentrated expressions of your analysis of each weekly topic. You can expect to prepare one or two essays per week, which your tutor will critique and help you develop. Each term awards a total of 12 semester hours of credit, apportioned from three to eight credits for each tutorial depending on the number of meetings and proportion of time the tutorial requires.
