    Topics: Art and Revolution in Paris offers the unique opportunity to study the relation of art and revolution in the city of Paris. Combining an art historian’s attention to contextual interpretation and a political scientist’s concern with the complex nature of political revolutions, we will visit museums and now-standard tourist destinations to see how they are infused with significance as sites and symbols of the French revolutionary tradition. This course fulfills ARTS or POLI requirements at Stern College.
