Information Session for Fall 2018:
Fall Semester at University College, London
Princeton students entering the Department of English or the Department of Comparative Literature have the opportunity to spend the fall of junior year at University College London (UCL), the oldest and largest of the constituent colleges of the University of London. This program is a result of the combined efforts of Princeton and UCL faculty members and offers a rigorous, exciting, and rewarding program of study at a top-ranked institution in one of the world’s great capital cities.
Princeton students live in UCL dormitories and choose three of their four courses from the regular offerings at UCL. The fourth course is the Junior Seminar in Critical Writing (ENG 300, a Princeton course taught by a Princeton professor exclusively for Princeton students). The seminar culminates in the writing of the Junior Paper.
Professor Zahid Chaudhary will teach this seminar. He is a specialist in English and Postcolonial literature and film, and used to live in London. He will be your Princeton guide and advisor through your academic work at UCL and for your Junior Independent Work. At Princeton he has offered courses on Magical Realism, The Cultures of Protest, Intro to Critical Theory, and Bollywood Cinema.
