Professor to be announced
Semester course, offered each semester: 1 unit


This course offers students the opportunity to study the history of France through the successive stages of the development of Paris, capital of the various kingdoms and empires throughout the centuries. The buildings and their particular styles are as many illustrations of the history of France and the evolution of its civilization over the past 2,000 years. The classroom lectures will be supplemented by visits to many buildings, from the Roman baths at Cluny to the Centre Pompidou at Beaubourg.
