Course Description:
From the Harry Potter studios and Kensington Palace in London to the Trinity College Library and a food walking tour in Dublin, students in this class will be challenged to critically examine how new landscapes and encounters with other cultures impact how we relate to ourselves and others. Students will investigate works in the Victoria and Albert Museum to see how travelers throughout history have documented their experiences using photography, journals, video, essays and documentaries. Discover pub culture while touring the Guinness Storehouse, and document your own experiences in digitally published stories for both private growth and public consumption. This nonfiction storytelling class challenges students to find the best tools to communicate their inward and outward experiences beyond selfies.
