Paris Study Abroad Opportunity with Ithaca College faculty this summer.
Professors Lauren O'Connell and Jennifer Germann, Department of Art History, are planning a 10-day short-term summer course in Paris from May 25-June 6, 2010. Called "Art and Politics in Paris: Reading Paris in Space and Image," this course will focus on the ways in which royal, national and popular power can be read in the architecture and image collections of the French capital. Through site visits to museums, buildings, and urban and garden spaces in and around Paris, students will learn about the capacity of the visual arts to serve and challenge those in power. This course is intended for a general undergraduate audience, will interest students curious about the art, language, history, and culture of France, and provides 3B GH credit. There are no prerequisites for this course.
Applications are posted online: http://www.ithaca.edu/hs/depts/arthistory/docs/Paris2010/.
The extended application deadline is Wednesday, March 10, 2010.
