Yesterday’s discussion of literary mappings and other ways of visualizing the world through fiction represents a good opportunity to remind you that our course is, of course, also intended to serve as a window out onto the world.
Above is a picture of St. Peter’s that a student of mine who took “Fictions of the Known World” two years ago just sent me from his junior year abroad. When the time to apply for study abroad opportunities comes around during the first semester of sophomore year, many students find that their USem instructors are still the professors who know them best. As a result, I find myself writing quite a lot of recommendation letters.
It’s never too early to think about your own future, and never too early to come see me and discuss how I might help you!
