I’ve always wanted to teach a community college class abroad. This spring, I’ll finally get to do it!
From May 28-June 11, I’ll be teaching a Humanties 150 (Survey of the Arts) course in Berlin, Germany. The good people at Walking Tree Travel helped me set up this itinerary , and you should agree it’s a kicker. We’ll have access to the Bauhaus archives, the KW Institute, the National Galleries and much more. To add context to this trip, we’ll read Dan Vyleta’s Pavel and I and watch Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire.
If you’re a Chicago-area college student who needs an elective or a Humanities requirement, you’re free to sign up for this class. You’ll gain credit for a course and have an experience that should stay with you for the rest of your life. If you’re already planning on a European backpacking trip, knock out a college credit in the meantime, and participate in a class that’s sure to provoke thought.
Note: the college is also offering a non-credit section of the class for adults (18+) who simply want to tag along for the ride and take advantage of the benefits: a Berlin transit pass good for 2 weeks, central accommodations with daily breakfast, several tours of Berlin neighborhoods, access to museums, and also a play and concert.
