November is the month of memory. Beginning in the wake of All Soul’s Day when families remember the dearly departed, by month’s end Americans will have made the traditional gesture of giving thanks to those, both past and present, worthy of memory. Near the middle of the month lies Remembrance Day, or as the French directly call it, “l’onze novembre”. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the peace treaty, but who could doubt by now that a century is not nearly enough to process all that took place between 1914 and 1918? Thus the need we have of memory for the further the events fade into the past, the more we are left to wonder what it is we are trying to recollect in the first place.

Every start of the month, we’ll be giving a brief overview of a selection of classes running at Schiller Paris that very month. The objective is double: provide readers an idea of our course curriculum on the one hand, and a perspective making sense of the whole on the other. Calling it “Current Events” becomes all the more appropriate as we attempt to tie in our curriculum selection with ongoing events taking place in the world at large. The mission of Schiller is to provide students a theoretical grounding and practical skills that they can deploy in the successive stages of their careers. Course content, the learning experience in Paris, interactions with faculty and classmates from around the world – all of this and more are what make the a Schiller degree a key moment before stepping into the wider world and into the current of events that continuously make their mark.Continue reading “Current Events Launch 2019”
