With our Spring into Summer programme beginning in only one week’s time the excitement is building in the LLC as we prepare for the start of this year’s programme of nine six-week courses and three one-off events.
The programme kicks off on Monday 9th June with the two courses Islam: Beliefs Practices and Traditions and King Arthur: Medieval Myths to Modern Motifs running in the evening, followed on subsequent days by courses in the areas of creative writing, science, language, art appreciation and literature. I remember the enjoyment of meeting so many people at the start of our 2013 programme and, as well as seeing lots of new faces this year, I’m also looking forward to the return of some of last year’s participants – some of whom will be studying something completely different and others something similar to last year. Back in March a previous participant very kindly wrote a blog post about the programme which can be found here.
Some of our courses are still accepting registrations. To find out which courses are open for booking head to the Spring into Summer webpage which has information on how you can register for the courses that are still available.
Something new for this year is a series of free events which I’ve been really pleased to tell people about. We’re working with colleagues from the School of Politics and International Studies on The Scottish Referendum: The End of Britain?, from the Legacies of War project on Women and the First World War and from the Marks and Spencer Company Archive on M&S and the War Effort. Information on all of these events can be found on the Spring into Summer webpage.
I’m looking forward to welcoming this year’s participants and there’s not long to wait with just a few days left until the start of the programme!
