A Successful Summer in England

Dr, Jim Crawford (Theater) and Dr. Chris McDonough (Classics) took a group of 8 students on the Sewanee-in-England program this summer, where they spent time in London, York, Chester, and Hadrian's Wall (where Dr. McDonough is pictureed enjoying the beautiful weather at Housesteads Fort.) Students had a good time talking with Kamila Shamsie, the author of "Home Fire" (an updated version of Antigone set among the Pakistani community in London). McDonough taught CLST 121 (Greco-Roman in Britain), and Crawford taught THTR 227 (Classic Plays on the London Stage).
