Program Description

Paris, Tales of a City

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SPRING 2019. SEE HOW TO APPLY TAB FOR MORE INFORMATION.

This course explores the cultural and intellectual history of Paris, one of the most idolized cities in the world. How did Paris acquire its mythic status in the popular imagination? How has that myth attracted immigrants and tourists alike during the last century? By answering this question and many others, students will acquire a deeper understanding of French and French-language cultures while at the same time honing their skills of interpretation, communication and analysis. Studying Paris from the city itself will enable the students to contemplate original artworks rather than reproductions and to experience a living history of the places that inspired the authors they will read.
