The France Field School spends eight weeks in summer studying expatriate literary culture in Paris, Tours, and surrounding cities. Through a range of coursework and excursions to museums, galleries, monuments, and more, students learned about some of the most exciting international cultural exchanges of the modern period. 

The Field School includes two upper-division courses in English literature and, in partnership with the Université François-Rabelais in Tours, offers a French oral practice and conversation course that allows students to develop their French-language skills and deepen their appreciation of the linguistic exchanges central to expatriate literary culture.
