Catalog 2021-2022

FRE 271 UT in Paris

The students will study the history of France through the development of Paris throughout the centuries. The city will be presented in a chronological fashion, by studying its monuments and lesser-known landmarks (these are oftentimes archaeological remains Parisians walk by every day without noticing them). These landmarks will be discussed in class and visited in Paris.

Emphasis will be put on how Parisians interact with their history every day, framing their mindset in the process. Students will be able to experience these interactions in Paris and therefore better comprehend the French way of life. The course will be conducted entirely in French.
