Upcoming Trips

Honors in London

When: August 1st to August 10th 
Cost: $1,875

Deadline: April 1st

Join us for a trip to London this summer and then a fall course on “Consumer Culture and Shopping Society” (HON 210). London is one of the original epicenters of global consumer culture. It is a city that played a central role in the evolution of mass production, consumption, fashion, shopping arcades, and pop culture. Through the lenses of sociology, psychology, history, architecture, and economics we will examine the role that consumer values played in city life, as well as the role the city serves as the veins of consumer culture. This will include a range of questions: How is shopping part of “being a city citizen”?  How has consumption shaped the evolution and planning of London? How do particular spaces shape consumption and the consumer mind? The goal of the course is to arrive at a better and more critical understanding of how consumption figures into individual and global identities. The London experience will provide the illustrations, data and a frame for the fall HON 210 course. 

Highlights: Soho, Museum of London, Museum of Brands, Harrods, London Apple Store, Portobello Road Market, Tate Modern Museum, Covent Garden, Victoria and Albert Museum, theatre outing, and more.
