Celebrating the success of the first Making of Modern Britain module, international students drew on their international heritage for a seasonal meal.
Over a diverse buffet, students reflected on highlights of the new module, which for this first semester has drawn students from the US and from across Europe. Having sampled British fare, students wanted to provide a lunch of their own nationality's dishes. Delicious sweets and savouries from Spain, France, Sweden, Scotland and other countries were brought in to finish off what they all deemed an amazing course that greatly enhanced their London experience.
Launched this autumn as part of the English Literature and Creative Writing programme, the Making of Modern Britain module introduces students to British culture and institutions, as represented in historical and contemporary literature, non-fictional narrative, film and music.
Students get to experience a variety of locations in central and Greater London related to the topics under discussion, from poetry in Greenwich to talk of the 60s at the Half Moon in Putney. The course will continue with new students on a termly basis.
Study Abroad student Julie Florenson, from France, commented about her involvement in the module and said, “Meeting and building relationships with students from all over the world has been an unforgettable experience and the sharing of food from our home countries has enriched that even more”. For more information on the course, contact convener Dr Liz Thiel.
