Hear Ye, Hear Ye: Oratory, Advocacy and Public Address in London
July 6 - August 5, 2018
From Parliament to Westminster Abbey, from Shakespeare's Globe Theatre to the Speaker's Corner at Hyde Park, London has served as an epicenter of history, stories, and public address through the centuries. Students in this advanced public speaking course will have the opportunity to visit contemporary and historical venues highlighting London's unique culture and history of oral communication and to use those locales as a backdrop and an inspiration for the various speeches that will be completed as part of the course. This course can count for upper division credit or to fulfill a basic public speaking requirement. This course may be paired with Culturally London: Communication and Competence in Group B.
For upper division credit: Completion of a Basic Public Speaking course or consent of instructor.
Physical Activity Requirements:
Since there are numerous venues we will be visiting during the 4 week session, students should expect to walk a great deal during this class.
