Info Session: UC Davis Seminars Abroad "A Tale of Two Cities"


Published on

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,” begins Charles Dickens’ famous novel featuring the two cities that are the focus of this course. The best and worst of times, indeed. Through centuries, England and France developed as nations while alternately battling and befriending one another. The study abroad seminar “A Tale of Two Cities” will focus on the history of enmity, rivalry, and cooperation between England and France and how this historical relationship is represented in the monuments and art in London and Paris.
