ARTS 223 - Paris: History, Image, Myth


FDR: HA
Experiential Learning (EXP): YES
Credits: 4

Prerequisites: Prerequisite: Instructor consent. Recommended: ARTS 120. Students may not take this course and HIST 210. Participants in this course spend four weeks in Paris asking the following questions: how can photography capture Parisian life and Parisian spaces to document a sense of place? How can we use photography to observe the city’s changing landscape as well as understand its rich past? Indeed, how has photography–the development of which is closely tied to Paris’ history–altered the fabric of the city? Topics include the social and political transformations of the 19th century, the shifting geography of artistic Paris, and contemporary trends such as immigration and gentrification. Numerous museum and gallery visits will also play an important role in our time in Paris. This course is taught in close collaboration with HIST 210, creating an interdisciplinary context for students to explore the relationship of photography to the modern history and contemporary issues of Paris.
