Harvard Summer Program in Aix-en-Provence, France

PROGRAM CANCELLED: THE AIX-EN-PROVENCE, FRANCE, PROGRAM WILL NOT RUN IN 2017.

Explore Arab and European literary and cultural encounters in southern France. 

This unique program, situated in the picturesque town of Aix-en-Provence, brings together students of Arabic and French language and culture to examine historical, literary, and cultural aspects of Arab and European interactions in the colonial and postcolonial (contemporary) eras. You investigate cross-cultural perceptions, tradition versus modernity binaries, travel, exile, immigration, gender, and family. Field trips and lectures on topics related to the area supplement class time.
