PARIS BLOCK 1, 2019

Information Session

Friday, November 30 at 3:00 pm

125 Packard Hall

In AH275/HY200 Paris on a Precipice: Early Twentieth Century Challenges in Art and History

Professors Gale Murray and Tip Ragan

Paris, France

Next year, Gale Murray (Art History) and Tip Ragan (History) will offer a new course AH/HY200, Paris on a Precipice: Early Twentieth Century Challenges in Art and History, which will take place block one in Paris.

Course Description: This course will explore politics, cultural, and social history in Paris from 1900-1940. The radical years prior to the First World War, the apocalyptic war itself, the anxieties of the interwar years, and the impacts of ongoing industrialization, colonialism, and ideological positioning serve as the backdrop for the most important and shocking artistic and literary movements of the era. Using the city of Paris as our laboratory, we will study artistic movements, such as Fauvism, Cubism and Surrealism, novels by French and expatriate American novelists, avant-garde musical compositions, and experimental film. Visits to world-class museums, including the Orsay, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée Picasso, and the Fondation Le Corbusier, will prove central to this exciting intellectual odyssey.
