REF NO.: 111

SUBJECT: New Harlow program offered in 2008

DATE: Feb. 18

Memorial University’s Harlow campus continues to expand opportunities for students to study overseas and discover some of the world.
Professor Don Nichol of Memorial University’s English department is offering a unique Literary London program in the Spring Semester. Professor Nichol will teach two courses – a special topics course on Literary London and English 4041 British Literature 1750-1790. Both courses will incorporate field trips to London landmarks such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Bloomsbury, the British Museum, and Westminster Abbey, making literature come alive for students. 
Professor Nichol’s wife, actor and director Mary Walsh, will make her teaching debut with two special topics courses – Introduction to Creative Writing: Satire and British Drama in Performance. In the first course, students will write satirical sketches based on their Harlow experience and engage in collaborative projects. For British Drama in Performance students will attend plays in London and environs, write reviews, participate in seminars and keep a journal of their theatre-going experiences.  
"Don and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to share our passions for literary London, satire and the theatre with Memorial students," says Ms. Walsh.
