Come learn about the Comparative Literature-Edinburgh program, new for 2019. Each August, Edinburgh is home to the Edinburgh International Festival (EIF), founded in 1947 and now the biggest arts celebration in the world. Along with EIF, which showcases classical music, major theater, dance, and cinema in the city’s primary venues, The Fringe is a carnival of inclusion, diversity, and small-scale/amateur arts, offering over 50,000 performances in more than 300 venues across Edinburgh. The Edinburgh Festivals (which include an additional 14 festivals on top of the two mentioned) embraces more literary fairs, move festivals, innovative galleries, comedy, and street art than one person can possibly manage.
This info session will be led by Program Director, Prof. David MacFadyen. The session will discuss everything you need to know about the program and what to expect when you arrive including: coursework, excursions, and lodging, among other questions related to your daily life while in Scotland.
