Faculty: Colin Foss
Description: This course introduces Paris through its history and its literature. For three weeks, we will be exploring the city in person, studying the historical transformations and the cultural history of the neighborhoods where we will live. Through our explorations, we will focus on public/private urban space, the nineteenth-century rebuilding of the city, public health, and immigration. Alongside trips to iconic sites such as the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, we will also experience the city as those who live there do: as a space where everyday life is structured by history and culture.
Pre-requisites: The course will be conducted in French and in English; students must have some knowledge of French, to be demonstrated by completion of FR201 or via interview.
Interview Required: Yes
