Paris is the city of lights, love and literature … at least it could be for you. The upcoming class instructed by Dr. Paula Reiter, associate professor and chair of the language, literature and communications division, will teach students about the romantic, realistic and naturalistic movements in relation to literature.

“We will be visiting Versailles; a chateaux; L’Orangerie, an art museum famous for housing Monet’s ‘Water Lilies’; Musee d’Orsay, a huge museum devoted to 19th century art; and the homes of several writers. We will also be eating delicious French cuisine,” Reiter said.
