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.

Block 8, 2020: The Industrial Revolution in Britain , Ec 385, Vibha Kapuria-Foreman & Esther Redmount – taught mainly in London.
Economics as it is practiced today is born out of the Industrial Revolution. We will examine how the thinkers and innovators of the period from the late 18th through the mid-19th century conceptualized what was happening around them and explore the legacies they left behind in the cities and countryside of England. These innovations – intellectual and material – changed forever how we think about the individual, the choices we make, the roles of government and business in society and the very concept of well-being itself.

Students will spend weeks 2-4 in England, based mainly in London. There will be field trips to places of importance to the course both within the city and around London.
We will also build in “free” time for students to do some exploring on their own. The program fee will be $3500 (est). Airfare not included.

Enrollment is limited and by the consent of instructors only. For students to apply for “The Industrial Revolution in Britain, Ec385” a block 8 course, please email Vibha Kapuria-Foreman or Esther Redmount for
