Paris, Ville-Lumière, has long been renowned for its urbanity, architecture, and city design. This class will trace the people, ideas, and projects that contributed to this reputation – from 1600 to the present. It will also explore current plans for and debates about Paris’ future development. The course includes a 5-day field trip to the city (over fall break). Co-taught by Professors Eugenie Birch (Department of City and Regional Planning) and Joan DeJean (Department of Romance Languages). Supported by the Mellon Foundation-sponsored Humanities + Urbanism + Design Project that will sponsor student travel expenses.
