UNVS 2004. Tale of Two Cities: Paris & Rome – Histories, Legends, Imaginations. 3 Credit Hours.
Students will explore the multifaceted cultural, historical and artistic development of Paris and Rome. Students will engage in pre-departure sessions on the historical and political realities that shaped the often turbulent life of these cities. Students will learn to identify the many artistic/architectural movements as represented in Paris, as well as the roughly seven-layered historical/artistic strata that are visible in the “Eternal City.” Students will learn about the diverse people that populate these two cultural capitals, and also the habits that make Parisians and Romans unique in the world. No previous experience with art, architecture, or cultural anthropology is required. No previous knowledge of France or Italy is needed. Students must be able to participate in both the pre-departure as well as in-country session. This course will require additional travel expenses.
