The Faculty of Education and Arts would like to invite you to attend an information session to find out more about the great opportunity we currently have for our students to study at the ACU Rome Centre in June 2018.
Unit Title: ENGL 224 Romantic Generations Dates: Arrive Rome Sunday 24 June 2018. Depart Rome 7 July 2018
UNIT DESCRIPTION: This unit will introduce students to a selection of Gothic and Romantic texts drawn from literature in English, which will include texts from the late eighteenth century onwards. It will focus on issues concerning the audience, language, and literary imagination, as well as investigating in detail the relationship between Gothic and Romantic sensibilities and texts. Through excursions to a variety of sites, students will explore the architecture, history and culture that inspired a range of works in Gothic and Romantic modes.
THE EXPERIENCE FOR STUDENTS: This is an opportunity to explore Gothic and Romantic imaginations where they were at work. Students will read Romantic descriptions of ruins in the sites being described and see where important literary figures lived and died. Take the opportunity to grow as a person and a learner and experience a completely different type of classroom.
ELIGIBILITY: Students must have successfully completed at least one unit in Literature (ENGL) at first year (100-level) or higher by the end of this year.
