language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 7.5 EC
fee GBP 1700

London has been the largest European city for more than two-and-a-half centuries and has played a dominant role in the context of European cities. We are going to explore the ways in which this notion is presented in examples of European literature, fine art and film in the 19th, 20th, and early 21st centuries. The course spans three weeks and offers you a mixture of classroom teaching, film screenings, workshops and excursions. We will also make a number of suggestions for subject-related activities outside your scheduled contact hours.

Course aim

The aim of this course is to develop your curiosity about, and awareness of, the multifaceted urban cultures in London as a whole, and in east London in particular. The course provides the contextual knowledge and analytical framework for you to critically engage with London metropolitan life and its various cultural manifestations.

Credits info

7.5 EC
You will study one course per Queen Mary Summer School session. Each course is worth 15 Queen Mary credits.
Usually, the 15 credits we award for each three-week Queen Mary Summer School session translate to 3–4 credits in the US system and 7.5 ECTS in the European system.
Your home institution should confirm if they will grant credit for Summer School courses. Whilst we will do everything we can to support you throughout the Summer School application process, it's your responsibility to check with your home institution if you can transfer credit from the Summer School prior to arriving at Queen Mary.
