Course Description:
London is a classroom that demonstrates how water affects society in complex and unexpected ways. In this class, students interested in sociology, history and environmental studies will be able to follow the flow of water through London's history and witness first-hand how important this vital resource has always been for its people. Contemplate high society at the Ritz during afternoon tea then walk the working class docks of Canary Wharf. Tour the streets of London tracing the path of hidden rivers and canals, visit the water well that caused the 1854 cholera epidemic, and tour the Thames River by boat.
