WT-1A Exploring the Arts in London and Paris
Professor Marion Smith
This course will immerse you into the bustling cultural life of London, one of the most exciting and diverse cities in Europe. From your home away from home at 35 Gower Street, an advantageously located, 227-year old townhouse, you will strike out and explore some of the world’s best museums, learn about art, architecture, the history of this great city, and see, first hand, many of the world’s cultural treasures. Evening theatrical, musical and dance performances will round out your visit to this city. A weekend trip to Paris will provide you an opportunity to tour the Louvre, the Musee d’Orsay, visit the Eiffel Tower, hang out at a café, and walk down the nave of Notre Dame. All the while you will learn how to hone your skills in making sense of and evaluating visual culture and share your ideas with your housemates.
