About:  Spending 4 weeks at Chonnam National University in Gwangju in their International Summer School.  Classes are M, T, Th, F.  W and Sat. are for excursions. One weekend will be in Seoul. 
We will be enrolling in the summer school program at Chonnam National University in Gwangju, South Korea.  The course I am teaching is an introduction to literature and film, focusing on adaptations of novels to film.  Student tuition is paid to Chonnam.  Credits will transfer to Tarleton because we have an exchange agreement.  Film professor Robert Anderson will accompany us to make a documentary about this program.
Students can take up to 6 hours in this program, including immersive Korean language.

Students are encouraged to contact Dr Tanter and meet with their advisers.
