Included in the study abroad are 3 weeks in Renne, and HON 3395L, Summer Study in Paris, an optional 1-week survey of the legacy left by the Franco-American artistic and literary exchanges that occurred in Paris and surrounding areas from the late 19th century to the post-war era. Through the study of seminal works by Gertrude Stein, John Dos Passos, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and James Baldwin, walks through the Parisian neighborhoods (Montmartre, Montparnasse and Saint-Germain-des-Prés) where they lived, and tours of the museums that house the masterpieces of the artists with whom they associated (Picasso, Dali, Man Ray, Matisse, Braque and Modigliani among others) such as the Musée Picasso, Espace Dali, the Musée de l’Orangerie, and the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, this survey will offer a rich evocation of American expatriates’ life in Paris. It will give students a concrete context for understanding 20th century Western cultural history, with the narratives of the Lost Generation and the Beat Movement as catalysts for thought, scholarly investigation and creative exploration.
