Mystics & Modernists: 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 pairs a course looking at music from the medieval period to the birth of Modernism with a literature course focused on expatriate American writers in Paris (Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Stein, Hughes). Students will visit the cathedrals, cafes, book-stores, and salons that inspired artists from the Gothic to the Twentieth Century. 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.

APPLICATIONS FOR 2014 ARE CLOSED.
