International Seminar Series: Summer in Paris

From the International Seminar Series website:  “The International Seminar Series has sponsored a four week summer community service program in Paris, France for nine years. The Paris programcontinues in 2007, but this July, we also shall open a new site inBarcelona, Spain. The programs offer students 16-18 years of age an intense cross-cultural immersion experience. They are rooted in substantial work in community service, intense language training, and course work (literature and writing, history and politics, art and architectural history). The sites chosen reflect old and new European traditions. Each is emblematic of a larger national culture. Their citizens struggle with: issues of national identity, new globalization, the presence of immigrant populations. Students learn to become residents of the larger culture, not passive observers or mere visitors.”
