    2020 Programs 

    France

    Paris — James Baldwin: Reading and Writing in France 
    Dates: June 1-30
    Credits: 6
    Tuition: $4,800 (Students are responsible for non-tuition costs, such as airfare)
    Presented in collaboration with our colleagues in Parsons Paris, which has had a presence in the city since the early 20th century, this study abroad seminar considers the life, work, and legacy of novelist, essayist, playwright, and poet James Baldwin (1924-1987). In 1948, Baldwin fled Jim Crow America for the comparative freedom of postwar Paris with only $40 in his pockets. We read his major fiction and nonfiction as well as other materials, consider the complex factors that led to his self-imposed exile, and explore his career as a writer in a city that also sheltered his one-time mentor, Richard Wright, and other African American writers and artists. We also look at what compelled Baldwin to return to the United States in 1957 and what finally prompted him to settle in the south of France after his turbulent involvement with the civil rights movement more than half a century ago. Students are asked to write two major pieces in response to Baldwin’s work, each of which is workshopped. In addition to guest speakers, the seminar also includes excursions to points of interest throughout the city and visits to salons of contemporary members of the African American and other American expatriate communities in Paris. Prerequisites: 3.0 minimum GPA and at least sophomore status by the start of the program. For more information on the content of the program, please contact Professor Richard Blint at blintr@newschool.edu.

    Germany

    Berlin Kabarett at the Freie Universität Berlin 
    Dates: May 30-July 11
    Credits: 6
    Tuition: $4,800 (Students are responsible for non-tuition costs, such as airfare)

    Professor Zishan Ugurlu will offer Creating a Solo Performance: Berlin Cabaret/Kabarett, an acting course that introduces students to the research, writing, and performance techniques of solo performers. In German, the word Kabarett (“cabaret”) has two meanings. The first meaning is the same as in English: “a form of entertainment featuring comedy, song, dance, and theater.” The second meaning is “a kind of political satire.” Kabarett artists focus primarily on political and social topics, which they criticize using cynicism, sarcasm, and irony. While investigating cabaret in Europe, particularly in Berlin from 1901 to 1944, students will create solo performances based on a topic of their interest: the self, politics, social justice, or diaries, letters, and memoirs that relate to Berlin cabaret. Coursework includes attending and discussing performances at Berlin's top theater and cabaret venues. The Freie Universität in Berlin also offers a variety of other classes that students can take at an additional expense. For more information on the content of the program, please contact Professor Zishan Ugurlu at ugurluz@newschool.edu.
