    Workshops & Infosessions

    We want to share an exciting Maymester opportunity from the USC English Department:

    Do you want to get away? Use some of your elective units to join award-winning BBC filmmaker Andrew Chater in a unique Bookpacking experience.

    The Maymester Bookpacking experience is open to all students; we would like to have a diverse group of students to provide different perspectives. Maymester courses will appear in the Spring 2022 Schedule of Classes, but are stand-alone Faculty-Led Program (FLP) offerings that provide exceptional opportunities for research and experiential learning off-campus, throughout the United States, or even abroad.

    If you are interested in the ENGL-352g "Bookpacking 'The Big Easy'" Maymester class, which counts for GE-B "Humanistic Inquiry" credit, please plan to attend an informational session with Professor Andrew Chater on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 12th, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm or WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20th from 12:00 pm TO 1:00 pm via Zoom.

    The info session will be an open forum setting, and you will be able to come in and excuse yourself at any point.

    The ENGL-352g course will take you through New Orleans and Southern Louisiana, where you will learn about the French Creole, Cajun, White Protestant, and African-Americans by living the experience through novels, music, and southern food.

    If you have any questions, please email Andrew Chater at chater@usc.edu or Jose G. Perez-Guerrero at jperezgu@usc.edu.

    Applications are due FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22nd by 4:30 pm via email to jperezgu@usc.edu with a Subject Line: ENGL-352 Application.
