Music & Literature Learning Community in Paris (Summer 2014)
Summer in Paris? Magnifique!
There is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other. We always returned to it no matter who we were or how it was changed or with what difficulties, or ease, it could be reached. Paris was always worth it and you received return for whatever you brought to it. But this is how Paris was in the early days when we were very poor and very happy." -Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
This five-week program in Paris studies the birthplace of the avant-garde in music and literature. The program pairs a literature course focused on expatriate American writers in Paris (Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Stein, Hughes) with a course on the music of early 20th century (Debussy, Satie, Stravinsky). Students will visit the cafes, book-stores, and salons where the expatriates worked and congregated, and hear the music, read the literature, and see the art that inspired their artistic experiments. One of Europe's most important artistic, political, religious, educational and commercial center, Paris abounds in history and culture and promises a dynamic and enriching experience for Augustana students.
