Study Abroad 2009 A Fun Memory!

The study abroad trip to France was 28 days of fun, culture, media visits and learning experiences! Students in Ethics and Problems and Travel Reporting met with NPR correspondent Eleanor Beardsley and visited France 24, France’s 24-hour news channel. They also visited important sites in Paris, Bordeaux and Lyon and shared great times with other Florida Gators and new international friends.

Final Book Lists Announced

New books have been added to the reading lists for RTV 4930 and 4931. All are available through on-line services such as Amazon and Books-A-Million and many can be purchased through local retailers.

There will be assignments related to both reading lists due during our time in France, so it’s a good idea to get an early start on the reading!

For RTV 4930 (Ethics and Problems) the new addition is: Travelers’ Tales: France, edited by James O’Reilly. San Francisco: Travelers’ Tales (2002). This collection offers vignettes written by travel writers about France, including life in rural and urban France.

For RTV 4931 (Travel Reporting) the new additions are: Travelers’ Tales: France edited by James O’Reilly. San Francisco: Travelers’ Tales (2002); and Best American Travel Writing 2008, edited by Anthony Bourdain. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company (2008). Part of an annual series, this book includes travel stories collected from leading publications, featuring great writing and exotic locations around the globe.

This completes the required books for the two classes, but each class will also have a required course pack which will be available later this Spring. Stay tuned for an announcement on that.

The rest of the required books for the two classes are listed below.
