Paris and Its Representations: Realities and Fantasies

FREN 331
Fall 2014
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: COL 232
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

This course investigates some of the myths and realities of Paris. Starting from an analysis of Paris in late 19th-century novels and paintings, we will explore the shifting perceptions of the city during the 20th century in fiction, poetry, photography, painting, and film. We will focus on such themes as the role of history in the structuring of the city, the importance of architecture in the ever-changing social fabric, and the recurrent opposition between the city and its suburbs. Students will be asked to attend various screenings.
