Study Abroad Experience: Bloomsbury Group, Art and Literature

The Bloomsbury Group were artistic and literary avant-garde pioneers of the first of the 20th Century. They collaborated with a global network of other artists and writers in innovative ways that transformed the artistic and literary worlds. This course will explore how the experimental modernism of these artists and writers were informed by their place -- Bloomsbury, London -- and their time -- 1905 to 1950. We will read selected works from Mulk Raj Anand, Virginia Woolf, Hope Mirrlees, T.S. Eliot, Jane Ellen Harrison, Sarojini Naidu, Roger Fry, EM Forrester, and CLR James. We will see the art of Vanessa Bell, Roger Fry, and Pablo Picasso. We will also visit many archives and landmarks related to the Bloomsbury Group.
