JUNE – JULY, 2022

DAVID MASIEL (drmasiel@ucdavis.edu)

University Writing Program (UWP) 104C, 198* United Kingdom—Edinburgh Scotland is a paradox. Independent or subjugated, practical or superstitious, forward thinking or forever mired in their own mythic past. This is a land where science and invention co-mingle with folk tales and myth. Great universities live alongside haunted graveyards, faerie mounds, and sea monsters. In Search of Scotland will explore the complex, contradictory culture, history, and life north of Hadrian’s Wall. Students will write reviews, travelogues, and feature articles, coming away with a deep understanding of Scotland, and vastly improved writing skills. Set primarily in Edinburgh, one of Europe’s most beautiful (and haunted) cities, In Search of Scotland provides intensive writing instruction coupled with field trips, ghost walks, and a three day tour of the Highlands, including the Isle of Skye, Loch Ness, and the haunted fields of Culloden.

University Writing Program (UWP) 101, 198* Greece—Athens, Hydra, Nafplion

Greece

When the god of sea and the goddess of wisdom competed for patronage of the great city, Poseidon, striking his trident to the ground, offered water. Athena planted an olive tree, becoming the patron deity of Athens, the starting point of our program. Through several field trips to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the program will take students from Athens to the oracle of Delphi and the monasteries of Mystras to the olive groves of the Peloponnese and the kingdom of the Myceneans. Traveling the same lands with the American and Greek writers (in translation) we will be reading, students will write about the complex identity of a country suspended between a rich past and a complex present in a land where the gods still speak. *Prerequisites enforced (see website).

Americans in Paris JUNE – JULY, 2022 RAQUEL SCHERR (rlscherr@ucdavis.edu)

Comparative Literature 180S, 198 France–Paris Thomas Jefferson wrote that “[A] walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of Life.” We will explore the city that mesmerized both Benjamin Franklin and Jefferson, the first Americans in Paris. We will examine why writers, from Jefferson to James Baldwin, wrote about Paris; why jazz musicians Sidney Bêchet and Cole Porter composed in Paris; why Josephine Baker danced in Paris and became a fashion icon; and why filmmakers such as Sophia Coppola and Woody Allen have featured Paris in their films. We will learn to read the city and report on its culture from the vantage point of young 21st-century Americans in Paris, and ask whether, as F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, “[the] best of America drifts to Paris,” and “The American in Paris is the best American.”

SUMMER ABROAD 2022 | globallearning.ucdavis.edu/summer

Ever since Alice fell down the rabbit-hole on the grounds of Christ Church College, Oxford has been at the center of modern fantasy literature. Oxford was home not only to Lewis Carroll, but also to C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Kenneth Grahame, Diana Wynne Jones, and Philip Pullman. Even J.K. Rowling is rolled up in the Oxford mythos. We will read novels from each of these authors, considering how place and era influence the literary imagination. We will discuss how these fantasies have themselves shaped the modern imagination, in ways both good and questionable. Outside of the classroom we will travel Oxford and environs by foot, long boat, bus, and punt, taking in the history and beauty of this ancient university town.


JUNE – JULY, 2022 MARC ISHISAKA-NOLFI (mishisa@ucdavis.edu)

We will explore Japanese modern life in many wards of Tokyo and consume the history of ramen and old candy packaging while eating Japanese noodles in an old Tokyo town replica. We will also delve into the old world of wooden temples, the serenity of the bamboo forest, and enjoy other moments of austerity in and around Kyoto. Prepare to immerse yourself in the wealth of culture that Japan has to offer through multiple, conceptually linked projects focusing on the fundamental choices designers make in translating concepts into effective graphic form through a design process that is rooted in research and initial concepts to project prototypes. There will be generous amounts of free time to explore and taste the vast wealth of culture that Japan has to offer. *Prerequisites enforced (see website).

Britain is steeped in history and bustles with contemporary culture—the ultimate museum without walls with over 1000 years of influential art, architecture, and design. Starting in the ancient English city of York, this program travels to the vibrant Scottish city Edinburgh and ends at the creative capitol London. These contrasting cities represent a cultural design slice through the heart of the British Isles. Creative design projects focus on multi-sensory products and experiences for public spaces, and the history and evolution of modern British design expression from the iconic Mini Cooper to the mini skirt. Additional excursions include famous historical and contemporary design sites in Liverpool, Glasgow and Brighton, renowned professional design studios, world-class design venues, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and London’s Design Museum. globallearning.ucdavis.edu/summer | SUMMER ABROAD 2022

JAIMEY FISHER (jrfisher@ucdavis.edu)

Cinema and Digital Media 167, 198 or German 119, 198 Italy, Switzerland, France Starting in Milan, Italy, then proceeding to the Locarno Film Festival in Locarno, Switzerland and finishing on the French Riviera in Cannes, France, this program examines contemporary cinema and television by considering how film festivals help in producing and distributing media around the world. The highlight of our time is the Locarno Film Festival, set in the lovely lake region of southern Switzerland/northern Italy (near Lake Como and Milan). Perched between Cannes (in spring) and Venice (in fall), Locarno is the most important summer festival. Students have a full festival pass and much of our work concerns the films/media at the festival. The class considers the relationship between national filmmaking and transnational festivals as well as that between Hollywood and independent/smaller productions. We examine a series of contemporary filmmakers who established themselves at film festivals (Wong, Haneke, Dolan et al.).

Three Cultures of Medieval Spain JUNE – JULY, 2022

ROBERT BLAKE (rjblake@ucdavis.edu)

Spain SUMMER ABROAD 2022 | globallearning.ucdavis.edu/summer

The blending of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim peoples in Medieval Spain offers a prime example of multiculturalism, mostly absent in the rest of Europe of the day. This cultural synergism was fueled by the Arabs’ superior material lifestyle, starting from their arrival in Spain in 711 and continuing until their expulsion by the Catholic rulers Isabel and Ferdinand in 1492. The all-pervasive cultural exchanges among these three societies over eight centuries profoundly shaped Spain’s identity, language, urban geography, architecture, aesthetics, literature, and daily habits. This program will introduce students to the legacy of this period by visits to Salamanca, Segovia, Toledo, Córdoba, Sevilla, Cádiz, and Granada. Students will draw parallels with today’s world as informed by their study of the Iberian experience.

KAREN BALES (klbales@ucdavis.edu)

Psychology 101, 198 or 199, 198* France—Strasbourg Psychology is the study of behavior, but underlying all behavior is the biology of the organism. This course is an introduction to the relationship between behavior and evolution, physiology, neurobiology and molecular biology; taking place in beautiful Strasbourg, France. We will examine the relationship of neuroanatomy and physiology to motivation, emotion and mental health, social relationships, and cognition in humans and other animals. We will introduce the field of animal behavior and visit centers that study animal behavior. Nearby to Strasbourg is the small town of Colmar, France, which houses not only a picturesque “Little Venice” district but also a museum in the former home of Auguste Bartholdi, who designed the Statue of Liberty, which we will visit as part of a discussion of creativity. Strasbourg is in the heart of Alsatian wine country and very near the borders of Germany and Switzerland.

Study the history and contemporary significance of the Cuban Revolution while living and traveling in Cuba. We will read historical narratives, watch Cuban films, meet with Cuban scholars and students, and immerse ourselves in daily life to develop our own interpretations of Cuba’s revolutionary tradition. What historical forces and circumstances led to the Cuban Revolution? How did participants, bystanders, and detractors experience the upheaval, and how have they struggled over its meaning and memory? How did the revolution impact hemispheric affairs and global politics? What does the future hold for Cuba and its revolutionary tradition? The program is based in Havana and includes frequent field trips and overnight excursions to Pinar del Río, Trinidad, Santa Clara, Varadero, and more. globallearning.ucdavis.edu/summer | SUMMER ABROAD 2022
