Quarter: Fall 2015
Grade: A
June 6, 2016

When I took it, this class was a seminar titled Paris: Biography of a City from 1715 to WWII.

Grades consisted of:
-A final research paper
-A midterm paper
-Discussion participation

The class was structured such that we would be assigned a lot of reading (150-300 pages) a week, which we would discuss during the three-hour seminar. It was a lot of work, but if you're interested in French history and culture, it isn't too bad. We read some interesting texts, including two novels and some guy's personal diary from the 18th century.

The midterm paper was fairly easy. All we had to do was write 8 pages based on class texts. The final research paper was...not at all easy. It's 12-15 pages on a topic of your choice as it relates to Parisian history. Some topics that people chose include the cholera epidemic of 1832, the history of bread, the birth of the Parisian fashion industry, etc. To find all the information I needed for my paper I had to use over a dozen books, journal articles, theses, etc. It was so much work, but in the end I wrote a paper that I'm very proud of. My advice: start early.

If you're really into French history, I recommend this class. You'll learn a lot.
