Orwell & Huxley

You will spend the summer exploring the chilling and thrilling dystopian novels Brave New World (Huxley) and 1984 (Orwell). You will studiously examine the social, political, and literary contexts of these works and happily engage with texts and films that either influenced these novels or were influenced by them. You will write essays; you will participate in online discussions; you will produce astonishing and innovative academic work. You will satisfy a requirement for the English major.

You will ENJOY it.
