The Global May Paris program explores the social, cultural and geographical history of the city of Paris from the Middle Ages to the present through the study of a number of key events and places in the city’s rich history. We will focus on different events and their geographical context within the city, thereby exploring the city not just from century to century but from neighborhood to neighborhood. 

By participating in this program, students will be able to articulate how each of the locations studied throughout the course has evolved over time to shape the ultra-modern and global city we know Paris to be today. Students will be able to identify how the Parisian landscape has shaped society and how society in turn shaped and transformed the landscape to suit the evolving needs and desires of the people of Paris.
