Explore Rome, "the Eternal City"
September 6 - 20, 2013
Deadline to enroll: March 15, 2013
Study at the University of Washington Rome Center with Marylhurst University professor Meg Roland and art historians with the Rome Center. We'll read literature that engages with the role of Rome in the imagination of western civilization and will immerse ourselves in the living art of Rome — paintings, sculpture, architecture. We'll discuss about art and literature while sitting near the Trevi Fountain.
We'll be staying near the beautiful Campo di Fiori, the flower and vegetable market plaza. We'll have an opportunity to get a little glimmer of what it feels like to live in Rome and, of course, to enjoy Rome's well-known cafes and beautiful light!
Don't miss out on this great learning adventure. Students can enroll in 3 or 6 credits (literature and/or art history*). Alumni, friends, or other interested folks can join the trip without taking the course credit, as space is available.
