Summer Study Abroad: TRDA 4595w
Professor Mary Buckley & Librarian Bill Gillis
June 3-16, 2015
Paris-City of Lights, City of Love, Cultural Capital, Moveable Feast: Earnest Hemingway wrote to a friend, "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then where ever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." Study abroad in Paris this summer and enjoy the feast. This course, now in its 10th year, will explore the journey of Picasso, Diaghilev, Kertesz, Stravinsky, and others who forged artistic collaborations and established Paris as the center of Modernist thought in the early 20th century. Visiting museums, touring iconic architectural sites and viewing contemporary performance spaces, today's art will be measured against the past.
