This summer, it will be my honor to cover Dr. Amy Clarke’s regular UC Davis Study Abroad class called Oxford: Portal to Fantasy.
Right now, I’m having a wonderful time revisiting some classics (and reading a few new ones). The course includes the following novels:
- Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
- Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
- C. S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
- J. R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
- Diane Wynne Jones, Howl’s Moving Castle
- J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
- Philip Pullman, The Book of Dust
My students will be coming from UC Davis, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, UCLA, and Foothill College.
