Paris: A Literary Adventure

                 Conducted in English

Some of the finest (but least-read) literature in the English language has been written by travelers as they explore the world. In this course, you will have the opportunity to deepen and enrich your exploration of one of the world's great cities, Paris, by reading and discussing literary texts set in, or written about, the historic European center of art, culture, and romance.

Living in the place you are reading about will make the texts come alive; reading about the places you are exploring will make your experience of those places much more exciting and meaningful. "Eyes-and-ears-on" writing assignments and visits to sites described in the texts will help you to discover the true joy and challenges inherent in traveling, in which, as Jack Kerouac said, “You always learn something and learn to change your thoughts.” Through assigned journal entries and writing assignments, you will also have the chance to add your own voice, your own thoughts and impressions, to the existing body of travel literature about Paris. Finally, students will have the opportunity to meet with two professional writers in Paris and will participate in writing workshops led by these professionals. Students who wish to do an independent study project in connection with their major can work with the professor to design an appropriate project.
