Description

From ancient Athens and Rome to modern Paris, cities have been prime sites for cultural, artistic, and architectural production. Using case studies of such cities as Athens, Rome, Florence, Amsterdam, Mexico City, London, Paris, Berlin, New York, and Chicago, the course will examine high moments of cultural and historic achievement from the fifth century BCE to the modern world. The focus will be on pivotal social and artistic moments in western culture (for example, seventeenth-century Holland; nineteenth-century Paris), but we will focus on artistic production (architecture, city planning, and fine arts).
