British Studies at Oxford Program

British Studies at Oxford Program . . .Oxford still remains the most beautiful thing in England, and nowhere else are life and art so exquisitely blended, so perfectly made one.”--Oscar Wilde
(2)

The British Studies at Oxford Program, or BSOP, is a program through Oakland University which travels to Oxford, England. Students spend one month studying at Brasenose College within Oxford University.

The Bodleian Library at University of Oxford: the Libraries hold over 13 Million print texts and someone interacts with their electronic collections every second, visits one of their libraries every 14 seconds, and borrows one of their books every 21 seconds.
This summer, British Studies at Oxford Program participants will visit the Bodleian during their stay in Oxford and 'Check It Out' for themselves!

That musty old thing? Oh, it's just the Magna Carta...
...Which is at Salisbury Cathedral, with the largest tower and oldest working clock in England.

Fun Fact: 'Avon' also means 'river,' so the River Avon is actually the River River...

After reading Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, BSOP students saw the play performed at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. The show opened with a song and dance ensemble that included "We Are Family"!

Feste was played by Le Gateau Chocolate who rocked not just the vocals and dance track, but a gown and heels!
As Groundlings, where you stand with your elbows on the stage, BSOP students have a whole new 'view' of the performance--including becoming part of the play!
One's whole perspective of Shakespeare and the play performed is affected by the Director's and Actors' interpretations as new meaning is literally 'thrust' upon you!

This week BSOP students also read Northanger Abbey, then visited the 'Which Jane Austen' exhibit at the Bodleian Weston Library to see actual manuscripts and correspondence by Austen before visiting Bath where the novel is set...
