Beschreibung: You know your way to Buckingham Palace. But do you know where the <Chelsea Royal Hospital< is and how you get into The Tower free of charge? We will show you how to read the history of London in its buildings and in the names of its squares and streets.
We will look at London´s history from Roman <Londinium< to today´s multi-ethnic London under a Muslim Mayor of Pakistani origin. The historical timeline will be illustrated by novels set in different parts of London and covering several centuries. Regular attendance and active participation are mandatory and will be monitored.
Each session will be preceded by 10 minutes >Current Events in Britain<.
I will accept the supervision of Bachelor/Master theses on topics developed out of this seminar.
Regular attendance is mandatory and will be monitored.
