HIST 207 - Paris: History, Image, Myth, Part I


FDR: HU
Credits: 3

Prerequisite: Instructor consent required. This course is the prerequisite for the spring course, HIST 210. Students may not take this course and ARTS 222. The history of Paris in the modern era is intimately linked to the history of photography, an artistic medium born out of the intellectual and cultural ferment of the 19th century. This interdisciplinary course, taught in conjunction with ARTS 222, examines both the history of Paris and the city's long photographic tradition. We cover how photography offers insight into the shaping of Paris in the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as how the medium has been transformed by the changing landscape of the city. Horowitz.
