About this course:

Four years of Nazi occupation dampened but never extinguished the creative spirit of Paris. When Paris was liberated in 1944, that spirit exploded in many directions, making Paris once again a cultural mecca for the world. Existentialism and feminism influenced literature, film, and music; after the gloom and shortages of wartime, the fashion industry came back to life, and Parisian playwrights reinvented theatre. Popular music incorporated biting social criticism and the words of great poets, and jazz became the music of the young. This course explores this amazingly vital cultural milieu flourishing in the midst of enormous political tensions.
