Featured Classes

ONLINE CLASS: Strangers On Our Shores: The 18th and 19th Century Novel  (2167)

Kidnappings, reluctant brides, unrequited love, and rebellion. In this four-week, discussion-based class, we will explore how Letters from a Peruvian Princess (1747), The Woman of Colour (1808), Ourika (1823), and Georges (1843) depict the suffering, triumph, and survival of characters of color in British and French fiction. Four Wednesdays: June 30, July 7, 14, 21 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST 

ONLINE CLASS: Paris: 21st Century Writers on the City of Light (2174)

In this class we will read three collections of essays by a wide variety of twenty-first century writers. For those who are longing to come to Paris but can’t do so quite yet, this is a lovely way to travel there vicariously through a rich variety of viewpoints. Three Fridays: July 9, 16, 23 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. EST

ONLINE CLASS: Proust's Time Regained (2189)

Will this concluding volume of In Search of Lost Time impress us as a memento mori or as the revelation of a threshold to hope and joy? While it is not ideal to begin this richly sedimented novel near its end, for those who have read it on your own, or those who want the encouragement of other eager readers, the class should help you to find out why so many readers finish the novel only to begin again from the beginning. Six Mondays: July 12, 19, 26 and August 2, 9, 16, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. EST
