Paris: A City and Its Culture 1850-1930

VMS 338

Neil McWilliam

This class looks at Paris as an urban space and as an artistic center. It explores the city as a physical environment that has to be understood in terms of varied populations, economic activities, and cultural representations. Viewing Paris as a subject for art as well as a major center for training and exhibition, the class will include a research project that uses new technologies to map the growth and development of artistic activity in the city.
