Paris: Then & Now – A Dialogues Seminar

April 28, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Paris has been a center of cultural and social innovation throughout the modern era, and it remains an influential trendsetter in the contemporary world. Why was Paris so influential in the 19th century, and how does it exemplify the transitions that are now taking place in the world’s largest cities? This Dialogues seminar will focus on two important periods of Parisian history and suggest why and how the “City of Lights” helps us understand key issues in modern urban cultures.
