 Paris and Berlin in the 1920s: A Cultural History a

  Between the end of the First World War and Hitler's seizure of power there occurred in Paris and Berlin a cultural explosion that altered our notions of art and reality and that have shaped our way of viewing the world ever since.  In this course we will explore the culture produced in the 1920s by French, German, and American artists and intellectuals and examine the historical forces that set the stage for their work.
