Autumn 2016-2017

Sarah Kunjummen

This course, part of the London program, will provide you with a framework for developing a quarter-long research project, enriched by either archival work or fieldwork, that examines some object or aspect of London's cultural past. We will explore the city via a selection of literary and theoretical texts, and through a series of field trips that reflect London's historical economies of circulation. Course readings and discussion are designed to help you contextualize your objects, which need not be textual, within broader accounts of cultural production; topics may include patronage structures, print culture, and media theory.
