I'll be leading a new course, or structured book group, from January 2013, on '200 Years of the British Novel'. This will be held in Brussels, Belgium, for a group of 20 students, and we'll be reading novels by Fanny Burney, Jane Austen, John Galt, Mrs Gaskell, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling, Rebecca West, Evelyn Waugh, Grahame Greene, and Jeanette Winterson. Full details can be found on the pdf file that you can download here.
The course will also be
available to a further 20 students who want to participate as
distance learners. You read the books to the same schedule as the
Brussels class, and (if the technology works) will be able to
listen in on the classes using skype or google videoconferencing,
depending on whether your timezone makes this practical. You can
also send me your comments and questions on the book we're reading
each fortnight, and in return I'll collate these into a long
document of answers and discussion, for each book. If you're
thinking about signing up for a formal course on English literature
at a university near you, this could be the perfect tryout for you.
Full details for distance learners can be found on the pdf
