Czech Maymester

READING PRAGUE: LITERATURE, ART AND HISTORY

   Prague is a center of diverse literary, architectural and artistic  influences and is a site that gave birth to influential writers such  as Jaroslav Hasek, Franz Kafka, and Bohumil Hrabal. Students explore  the architecture, distinct districts, monuments, cemeteries, churches  and Castle, and consider how these sites have inspired countless  writers from around the globe. For most of its history, Prague was not a homogenous Czech city. The rich Jewish history of Prague is a strong  component to the explorations, readings and discussions of the  program, as are the incorporation of groups such as Roma (Gypsies),  Germans, and the currently thriving Vietnamese community. Students  explore the diversity of Prague through historic and cultural site  visits, and by reading literary works, watching contemporary films,  and surveying recent works of art.
