Intensive study of how Paris and France are represented in literature and in the news media compared to how today's Parisians of diverse social and cultural backgrounds and neighborhoods view themselves. Students read two novels featuring Paris as a main character, watch and read daily news and interview various Parisians in order to determine how certain stories, representations and myths are created about a city and how they compare to reality. This work is discussed in relationship with the current representation of French national identity and the role of France in the world today.
