Course: The Genius of Study Abroad: A Tale of Two Cities

Professor: Barbara Mossberg

"The Genius of Study Abroad: A Tale of Two Cities" is a course of active, activist global learning that considers the interactive international and interdisciplinary aspects of creativity in revolutionary imagination as seen in movements in architecture, landscape, arts, science and technology, and legislation on human rights and equality on both sides of the Channel. In London, Oxford, and Paris, students retrace the literal and intellectual paths of people who developed new ways to conceive and express our world, and live in it. As it turns out, these paths entailed “study abroad,” crossing borders in imagination and fact, much like the figures in Charles Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities,” whose work gives our course its name and theme.

This course is offered through the UO Study Abroad Program.  Additional information can be found at:
