London 2022

From May 16 to May 26, 2022, University of Illinois English Professor Andrea Stevens led a group of Chancellor’s Scholars on a journey to “Immersive London”!

The group explored the theatre and culture of London, England. From its medieval origins, the West End has evolved into one of the world’s premier theater and entertainment districts. Students engaged with their surroundings via a range of activities, including guided tours, walking tours, free-writing sessions, museum visits, and trips to see current shows at different venues both commercial and avant-garde or experimental. Our home base was close to the historic “Southwark” area of London, near the site of the Globe Theatre, the Borough Market, and the Tate Modern. Our time together also allowed for one day trip to the UNESCO World Heritage site Canterbury in Kent.
