HIST 210 - Rereading/Rewriting Paris


FDR: HU
Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring 2013

This course spends four weeks in Paris analyzing the city as a dense and multilayered “text.” Through daily readings, site visits, and film screenings, we examine how contemporary Paris manifests its complex history from Roman colonization to the present. Topics studied include memory, space, the flâneur, power, violence, universalism. and tourism. Interdisciplinary course readings draw from the fields of history (Nora, Stora, Shattuck), literature (Proust. Baudelaire, Perec, Rabelais), and cultural theory (Lefebvre, Certeau, Benjamin, Foucault. Freud). Horowitz, Chenoweth.
