80 :  Cultural History of Paris
Spring 2022
Class No: 28567
B4 Dwinelle
Mairi-Louise McLaughlin
11-12:30 pm

This class will offer students an in-depth exploration of the urban artifact that is Paris. That is, rather than attending to a selection of events having transpired in Paris over its history, we will be proceeding “forensically,” peeling back what is visible to today’s observer in order to uncover the competing ambitions, economic pressures, and ideologies that have produced one of the most visited cities in the world.

Taught in English.
