Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this workshop in Paris will run exceptionally in early summer 2021, May 19 - June 12. Our program invites students to learn on location about masterpieces of French and American culture from the cathedrals of the Middle Ages to the contemporary modernist metropolis beloved by artists, writers, and filmmakers in a transnational context. Participants take two courses: ENG163 (Travel and Literature) and FRE 131 (Masterworks of French Literature in Translation). All courses are taught in English by experienced faculty from Miami University; some French is recommended, but not required. The Paris Cultural Capital program fulfills either the Global Perspectives requirement (6 credit hours of study abroad), or Miami Plan Foundation requirements for HumanitiesIntercultural Perspectives (ENG 163), or Global Perspectives courses (FRE 131). These courses also count toward the English major & minor, and the French major. Space is limited to 16 students, so apply soon.
