Spring Semester 2017 – Ten students from the Université de Lausanne and their two instructors embark on a journey to explore the Romantic productions centred around two lakes – the Léman in Switzerland and Grasmere in the Lake District, UK. After 5 in-class seminars, we will set off on walking tours of both these areas, to read works in-situ. For these explorations, another group of students and their lecturers, from the University of Lancaster, will be joining us. This blog will allow for the recording of a variety of inputs – from photographs to journal entries, as well as creative writing and more direct responses to some of the literature and poetry we will encounter.
Amongst others, we will be reading:
William Wordsworth…Dorothy Wordsworth…Lord Byron…Mary Shelley
