FR French Survey: Baroque and Enlightenment- Albert-Galtier Introduction to major themes and ideas in French literature from the 17th and 18th centuries through the reading of representative texts. The sea has always held empire over human lives and imagination. Current debates and scenarios on rising sea levels, recurrent tsunamis, and shipwrecks in the Mediterranean remind us daily that the deep blue is mightier than humankind. Instead of focusing on human agency exerting control over the seas then and now, the course will address the extraordinary force of the seas as it has attracted and terrified sailors, merchants, poets, and writers from the beginning of times.
At the moment where environmental law is seeking to establish the ocean as a legal personality, the objective of the course is to provide a humanistic background and approach to debate the relationship of the sea with humankind. As such, our readings will be inscribed within what John Gillis as termed the Blue Humanities. The course is organized chronologically to grasp the genealogy of the empire of the seas and trace its uninterrupted power or law as expressed by French authors, travel writers, musicians, and visual artists.
The course begins with the antinomy between navigation and agriculture as discussed in classical antiquity, and the creation of the sea in Genesis.

With numerous wonderful museums, abundant parks and gardens, and historic buildings, there is much to see and do in Montreal. But one of the places that was very interesting to us was the former site of the summer Olympic Games of There is a metro stop near the Olympic park and we got off the metro there. The former Olympic stadium is the largest in Canada. Its architecture is truly unique and one is immediately struck by the imposing tower which overlooks it and which partially supports the roof.
One can go up to the summit of the tower by a funicular and reach a vantage point. After our descent from the tower, we wandered through the botanical gardens, the insectarium, the biodome, and some other attractions.
