FREN 174 - Le Flaneur I


This is the pre-departure course for the January class in Paris (Le Flaneur II). A “flaneur” is defined as “an aimless idler; a loafer…from flaner, to idle about, stroll.” By walking about and observing Los Angeles, and by thinking about cities critically through diverse readings, students will be initiated to fields of knowledge ranging from urban studies to literature. Students will use what they learn in this class and in the field to construct a project to be completed in Paris during January. Though the course is in English, some language abilities are a must. Students are therefore required to enroll in a French language course or have taken courses in French at Whittier prior to the January course in Paris. Experience in sociology is strongly recommended. Pre-departure course for January class in Paris
