Study Tours 2015

Paris, France, May 2015

Instructor:  Ron Rindo

Theme:  American Writers in Paris

This study tour will introduce students to the work of American expatriate writers living in Paris between 1900 and 1960, with an emphasis on the "Lost Generation" living on the Left Bank in the 1920s.  Students can sign up for the course as English 350 (Literary Study Tour); English 204 (Introduction to Creative Writing); English 405 (Special Topics in Creative Writing) or English 709 (Graduate Special Topics in Creative Writing).  We will hold several orientation meetings during the regular, fourteen-week spring semester.  During the interim term, we'll meet in class during the first week, and then we'll spend fourteen days in Paris writing in cafes; visiting cathedrals, museums, and other sites; and taking walking tours in the footsteps of some three dozen American expatriate writers.  We'll take one overnight day trip into the French countryside.  We'll travel to Normandy to visit the American cemetery and the beaches where the allies landed on June 6, 1944.  After a night in Brittany, we'll travel to Mont Saint-Michel, one of the most spectacular sites in France and the subject of a book by Henry Adams.  Students will also have two or three free days to spend as they wish--writing in cafes; visiting other sites and landmarks in the city; or perhaps traveling a short distance by train to see Versailles, or Chartres, or Fontainebleau.
