WLC 2500 - INTRODUCTION TO PARIS


This course is an introduction to everyday life in Paris, at once a global modern city and a living museum.  Paris is a vibrant culture and commercial hub and the academic place of excellence in France, a city of continuity and change, of love and conflicts - the home of expatriates, artists, romantics, and revolutionaries of every kind.  We will study the history and geography of Paris and trace the city’s evolution, from its Roman arena to its Eiffel Tower, from the Louvre’s medieval foundations to its ultra-modern glass pyramid.  We will look at architecture, painting, sculpture, music, literature, film, and popular culture and study how they express ways of life over the centuries.

Credits: 3 cr.
