Through exposure to foundational critical works, literary reflections, and field trips to historical and cultural sites, students will learn about the development of Critical Theory within the historical context of the ideological enthusiasms and conflicts of twentieth century Europe, while also being challenged to apply these theories to the contemporary world. The program also includes intensive language classes in French, as well as visits to historic and cultural sites in Paris and elsewhere in France.
