FLF 301  Paris and French Culture

The city of light, a movable feast, Paris is, as Nietzsche wrote, an artist’s only home.  After exploring the city’s origins, we will concentrate on the place of Paris in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, for it is during this post-revolutionary period that Paris moved beyond its role as a capital and became embedded in the imaginare not only of the nation, but also of the world.  Using a variety of sources including articles, a play, book excerpts, site visits, and guided tours, we will discuss the role of Paris in French culture and national identity and will explore topics including religion, income inequality, art, immigration, and food.  Site visits will include: Versailles, le Louvre, le Musée d’Orsay, la Comédie-Française, l’Opéra Garnier, and Notre Dame, among others.  The course will be taught in French and is open to all students who have completed FLF 202.

*  ENG 300 Exposition: Writing About Travel   THIS CLASS IS FULL.

"Great travel writing consists of equal parts curiosity, vulnerability, and vocabulary. It is      not a terrain for know-it-alls or the indecisive. . . . We observe, we calculate, we enquire,we look for a link between what we already know and what we're about to learn. The finest travel writing describes what goes on when nobody's looking." (Tom Miller)
