HIST 210 - Paris: History, Image, Myth, Part II

4 credits, FDR-HU

Four weeks in Paris, France

Prof. Sarah Horowitz

This course spends four weeks in Paris asking the following questions: how has history shaped Parisian life and Parisian spaces? How can we use photography to document 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's history - altered the fabric of the city? Topics will include the social and political transformations of the 19th century, the shifting geography of artistic Paris, and contemporary trends such as immigration and gentrification. This course will be taught in collaboration with ARTS 223.
