AH 200 – Topics in Art History: Turn of the Century Art of London, Paris & Vienna

Artistic and related intellectual, social and cultural developments in three important capitals of Europe circa 1880-1910. We will investigate the impact on art of this age of uncertainty and transition from traditional to modernist points of view, following themes of degeneration and decadence, anxiety and the inner life, and the preoccupation with sexuality, especially androgyny and the fatal woman. The class will examine a number of artists in depth, including Toulouse-Lautrec and Redon in Paris; Klimt and Schiele in Vienna; Burne-Jones and Beardsley in London. We will consider their work in relation to Freud, Schopenhauer, and Oscar Wilde, among others, as well as their repudiation of Victorian morals.

“Mr. Gay Syria” (2017)

Ayse Toprak

Monday, Mar. 4, 12:45 pm. Cornerstone Screening Room.

Screening and discussion (by Skype) with director Ayse Toprak, moderated by Baran Germen

“Mr. Gay Syria,” which had its world premiere at the Sheffield Doc/Fest and has won numerous awards, follows two gay Syrian refugees who are trying to rebuild their lives. Husein is a barber in Istanbul living a double life between his conservative family and his gay identity. Mahmoud is the founder of Syria’s LGBTI movement and is a refugee in Berlin. What brings them together is a dream: to participate in an international beauty contest as an escape from their trapped lives and an answer to their invisibility.

Ayse Toprak is a native of Turkey who studied at New York University and worked around the world for 15 years before returning to her homeland. In addition to many other honors, she has been a Berlinale Talent Fellow. Baran Germen is Visiting Assistant Professor in Film and Media Studies.

Apply now for “French Philosophy in Context: 1930 to the Present,” a block 2 course offered next fall IN PARIS by Jonathan Lee and Dennis McEnnerney, by completing this Qualtrics application form:

https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Ftinyurl.com%2FCC-Paris-PH205&data=02%7C01%7CStudentDigest%40coloradocollege.edu%7Cc1790b99c9bb45d859ae08d6a014c00b%7Ccfc7b13c12964387b3085de08fd13c99%7C1%7C0%7C636872408333569899&sdata=9x5HmiSPhuptJB%2BX3TWVdqWtEzMKEXVS7H2Wwgxs2Fw%3D&reserved=0

This course explores the development of French philosophy from the interwar period to the present. Using the city of Paris as its context, the course examines how dramatic social and political challenges influenced the paths of French philosophical reflection, moving thinkers to question the foundations of knowledge, morals, and politics, leading ultimately to what might be called a “decentered” cosmopolitanism.

Live in one of the best, liveliest neighborhoods of Paris, and study philosophy where it happened and is happening! With field trips to relevant sites in Paris and class visits by contemporary French philosophers.

The program fee will be $3850. Airfare and most meals not included.

Financial aid available for students with demonstrable need who applied for aid on Summit by March 1st. If you did not apply on the 1st, there remains some possibility of receiving aid, if you apply now.
