In fall 2019, IC co-director Chip Oscarson and IC programmer Marie-Laure Oscarson will be leading a semester-long study abroad program to Paris–the birth place of cinema. The focus of the program will be on the media history and the cinema cultures of Europe. As part of the program students will participate in film festivals, visit the varied cinematic venues around the city, visit museums, do archival research about film history, and come to understand better the visual cultures that produced cinema in the late 1800s. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience not to be missed. Classes can be applied to fulfill GE requirements or to meet program requirements in both the ICS minor as well as the Media Arts track IHUM major. No prior knowledge of French is required.
