                          1. Description

                          What can we say about the painting or rather what does the painting convey?

                          A number of famous masterpieces will be discussed (from Giotto, Poussin, Van Gogh, Malevitch, etc.), based on well-known written reviews. The students will be able to understand different perspectives on the creation of the masterpiece as well as on the way that it was perceived and commented across the centuries.

                          Each class will start with a student's short presentation which will provide the basis for a class discussion.

                          The student requires no prior knowledge, but the course requires regular reading and active participation in class.

                          2. Competencies to be developped

                          The student will be able to :

                          - Decrypt and analyze a painting

                          - Look for sources in a field other than scientific , measure their reliability and put them to good use

                          - Mobilize their skills to build a structured argument, whether it be written or spoken

                          - Produce a written review, which is enjoyable to read thanks to effective proofreading (by oneself and others )

                          3. Detailed Programme

                          The corpus and a more detailed programme will be presented at the beginning of the year.

                          Theatre Studies : analysing performance - CL112

                          1/ Description

                          The course aims to provide basic knowledge about theories and methods used in analysing contemporary theatre performance but to also consider theatre not only as simple entertainment but part of the "arts" in its own right. The program will focus on actual research theatre and will question the functions of text in contemporary performance. It will lead on to another important question : how we regard things in general.

                          The seminar is very practical : a text is studied or the "project" is presented before viewing the play. Students are encouraged to become active spectators and to share their thoughts and remarks with the rest of the class. This debate will allow a collective analysis of the play.

                          Students are encouraged to attend a number of performances during the theatre season in Paris, and to participate in group discussions.

                          Mid-ninteenth orientalist painters crossing the Mediterranean followed by primitivists after Gauguin sought to "leave behind" a world considered as too domesticated and civilized: Europe. Following in their footsteps, we will discover how this way approach to thinking comes from ancient fantasies and exotic dreams.

                          The image of Black in Western Art

                          Incarnation of anguish, death and the unknown during the Middle Ages, from the beginning of the Renaissance period, coloured people became a subject of fascination for European artists. We will look at how this came about during the module.

                          We are unable to escape "architecture". We live with it, and encounter it daily. Each building, whether it be public or private, small or big, has a story. We know how it was conceived, designed and built. Most importantly of all, it is a reflection of its time. It expresses whether it be in stone or concrete the intentions of its creator. To summarise, it portrays a certain ideology. We need to be aware, decrypt and understand what it is trying to convey. In order to do so, we need a cultural background. Architecture has its own history with a vocabularly, grammar and syntax all of its own.

                          We are unable to escape "architecture". We live with it, and encounter it daily. Each building, whether it be public or private, small or big, has a story. We know how it was conceived, designed and built. Most importantly of all, it is a reflection of its time. It expresses whether it be in stone or concrete the intentions of its creator. To summarise, it portrays a certain ideology. We need to be aware, decrypt and understand what it is trying to convey. In order to do so, we need a cultural background. Architecture has its own history with a vocabularly, grammar and syntax all of its own.

                          One must be aware of these asepcts and this course seeks to give you that knowledge. You will be able to "read" your own town and also those that you discover during your travels. You will see the streets that we know with fresh eyes.

                          The course consists of three parts :

                          - Brief summary of the history of architecture

                          According to the historian Michelle Perrot, the relationship between the sexes males and females in one of the "key factors" in history. We need to analyse and understand this relationship and their impact on french society post-revolution.

                          Identity is not only the result of our biological dispositions but also the result of education and social interaction. This course aims to look at the historical differences between the sexes since the french revolution until french contemporary society.

                          We will look at society norms in terms of maternity, paternity, virilty, selling his/her body, and also in a wider context in terms of leisure, work, or the political arena.

                          Music and esthetics - CL128

                          1. Description

                          Every analysis "must be accompagnied by an invention which makes it useful" (Paul Valéry). This also applies to music : beyond the expectations of the composer, each person will have a different and new interpretation of what he/ she hears. Each individual must try to listen to the music rather than simply listen to music. It is also important to be able to inteprete their perception of what they have heard but using simple words rather complex phrases. Music can thus be considered as pluridisciplinary : a mixture of art and literature.

                          The second part of the module will consider whether music is necessary and useful especially in the context where music is omni-present whether it be in church or village fetes.

                          Competencies to be developped

                          - Look for sources in a field other than scientific , measure their reliability and put them to good use

                          - Mobilize their skills to build a structured argument, whether it be written or spoken
