Although there are no undergraduate programs currently in progress, the summer is a busy time for the London Centre team. As well the post-graduate Law Summer School, the London Centre has hosted a range of conferences and events over the past month, including “The Hospitable Text: New Approaches to Religion & Literature”, an international conference on Biomedical Research organised by Notre Dame Professor Mark Alber; and an international gathering hosted by Notre Dame Professor Scott Appleby and the Kroc Institute continuing Kroc’s powerful “Contending Modernities” series.
LUP faculty member Prof Clive Bloom will be one of several high-profile speakers debating the topic of ‘Protesting London‘ in front of a sold-out audience next week, as part of the Bishopsgate Institute’s ‘London in Peril’ series. Author of books including ‘Violent London: 2000 Years of Riots, Rebels and Revolts‘, ‘Gothic Histories: The Taste for Terror, 1764 to the Present‘ and ‘Terror Within: Terrorism and the Dream of a British Republic‘, Prof. Clive Bloom has taught a wide range of courses for the LUP over the years; in Fall 2011 he will teach ‘Seeing Britain on Screen’.
The OIS London Summer Program 2011 wrapped up last week; the second successful program completed under the directorship of Prof. Cornelius O’Boyle. The College of Engineering’s Summer Engineering Program in London closed this weekend.
We wish all our departed students safe travels, and rich, rewarding summer breaks.
