FRANCE STUDY ABROAD: ART, WAR, AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Faculty: John Bailly
PERE LACHAISE PROJECT
Students are to compare and contrast themselves to a historical figure: examine commonalities, highlight differences, and explore ambiguities.
When in the appropriate location to the figure in Italy, each student will make a brief (5-10 minute) oral presentation to the class about their selected figure.
These following factors will be considered in determining the project grade.
Familiarity with subject
The nature of the connection between student and subject
The broader context of the student’s reflection (Can others relate to the points made in the project)
Originality of content
Below is a list of figures and events to select from. If the student wishes to select another, that choice needs to be approved by the professor. Each character or event may only be selected by one student.
Abelard and Heloise
Honore de Balzac
Jean-Jacques-Regis de Cambaceres
Simone Signoret and Yves Montand
Elisabeta Alexandrovna Stroganova
