For Fall Quarter 2011 (October 1 to December 3), the Department of Comparative Literature will organize an interdisciplinary program of study in Paris. This program offers students a unique opportunity to earn 15 UW credits while living and studying in one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in the world. The program is open to all UW students with an interest in the humanities and arts.
The program includes three courses: “Introduction to Theory and Criticism,” taught by Mikkel Borch-Jacobsen (French and Comparative Literature); “Experiencing Emergent Modern Paris”, taught by Gary Handwerk (English and Comparative Literature); and a French conversation course (instructor TBA). Coursework will be supplemented by lectures and field trips to cultural activities in Paris.
French home stay and board will be arranged in Paris. Classes will take place in the Saint-Germain des Prés area, in the very heart of Paris.
Students in the program will maintain their UW residency and any established financial aid eligibility. Students must take all three courses in order to meet concurrent enrollment requirements. Participation in the program will earn 15 UW credits. Credits will be recorded on students UW transcripts and apply directly to UW graduation requirements.
