Available Classes

Travel through three great cities of the world via the literature that each has inspired. The cities we will be exploring are Sydney (city of water), Paris (city of love) and Dublin (the divided city), each of which is reflected in a large body of literature and it is through this, that the essences of each of these cities shifts over times and within different genres. This course cuts across the boundary between literature and travel and is accompanied by a source book of extracts and readings.

This is a Discussion Group course, if you aren’t already part of a group please see ‘Getting Started’ below.

Start your Group: Anyone can start a Discussion Group – seek out some like-minded friends or put up a notice in your local library, bookshop or workplace. Please note a minimum of 6 people is required to start a new discussion group.

Arrange the Meetings: New groups need to decide where and when to meet, and for how long – whatever best suits members' particular situations.

Run your Group: Choose a secretary to liaise with WEA and your tutor, a Discussion Leader to chair meetings, a reporter to take discussion notes to send to your tutor, and maybe a librarian to look after the books.

Start the Course: Contact WEA Sydney to enrol. Bookings can be made for one year, divided into two terms – Term 1 commences in February, Term 2 in July (Groups may make forward bookings for popular choices). Please indicate in what order your Group wishes to study the courses, if more than one course is booked.
