Syllabus Description (from Canvas):

Paris (HSTEU210) is an interdisciplinary course spanning the entire history of the city of Paris, from its real and mythical origins to the present.  Lectures and readings will emphasize political, cultural, and urban history, including the centrality of Paris in the history of France and as the capital of a global empire.  We will explore the Parisian landscape, both real and figurative, through a variety of lenses: social geography, cultural and artistic representations, architecture and urban planning, business practices, race and sexuality, political violence, and civic and religious ceremony.

HSTEU210 "Paris" will be offered in person.
