Continuing Education’s Go Learn Program allows participants to explore the world with hand-selected U of U faculty who are experts at bringing local and international destinations to life. Two Humanities faculty members will be leading trips during the upcoming Fall semester.
Jeremy Rosen, Assistant Professor of English, will be leading a trip called Paris: The Jazz Age. Rosen teaches contemporary U.S. and world literature, and is interested in how contemporary pop culture takes up and reworks classic authors and books. This has led him to an interest in Hemingway, and how Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast has helped propel our fascination with Paris. This is an opportunity to walk in Hemingway’s footsteps, explore Picasso’s favorite haunts, become immersed with the art that inspired Gertrude Stein, and gaze across the bridges where Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald fell in (and out of) love.

Randall Stewart, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Classics, will be leading a trip called Greece: Islands of the Gods. Stewart has taught classical mythology for more than 25 years and is a renowned storyteller, who believes that stories—ancient or modern—are the best way to explain reality. This trip is a journey of some of the most notable areas of Greece including Athens, Delphi, Olympia, Crete, Santorini and Mykonos.
