Revisiting Paris

André Benhaïm

Back to "Fall 2023" courses

Beyond the myth of the City of Light, this course proposes to look at the real “lives” of Paris. Focusing on the modern and contemporary period, we will study Paris as an urban space, an object of representation, and part of French cultural identity. To do so, we will use an interdisciplinary approach, through literature, history, sociology, art history, architecture, etc. And to deepen our understanding of its history and its making, we will take a mandatory trip to Paris. During Fall Break (Oct. 14-22), students will not only (re)visit the city, but also meet guest speakers and conduct personal projects they will have designed in Princeton.
