France: La Bonne Vie – French Culture and Society

North American and European conceptions of the good life ("la bonne vie") and society diverge in significant ways. Europeans, for example, tend to put a higher priority on leisure than work and place less emphasis on individualism relative to communal values. In this course, we explore those differences by traveling to France and gaining insights about that country's recent history as well as its social practices and institutions. The study tour in this course will take students to Paris, Nice, Cannes, Monaco, and Monte Carlo.
