Why do the British say ?Sorry? for everything? What is the role of the monarchy? Does the British class system still exist? What is it like being British-born of Indian parents? How many languages are spoken in London? What is a stiff upper lip anyway? These are only a tiny fraction of the questions that will surface during your stay in London. Through class discussions, readings, written ruminations, and excursions, you will in this course explore a range of cultural elements and challenges unique to the United Kingdom in general and London in particular, from the light (British etiquette) to the substantial (the impact of immigration).
You must sign up in the Dept Office before registering through WEBCAT.
