The fall course, “Introduction to academic French and conducting research in France,” enables young German historians and art historians to discover the discipline of art history in French institutions.
In addition to a half-day specialized language course, the main institutions in Paris will be presented: the French National Institute for Art History (INHA), documentation from the Orsay and Louvre museums, the Kandinsky Library, and other important archives and libraries.
Lectures by experts complement visits to the various sites. Fall courses generally take place in the second half of September, with the cooperation of the German Historical Institute of Paris (DIHA). Depending on the year, the course is held either at the DFK Paris or DIHA.
Prerequisite: Applicants must have completed a Master’s degree in history or art history.
