More Info

Summer 2024 will bring the Olympics to Paris, so it is a good time to walk the streets of this great city and know the various neighborhoods and sights and museums. Containing world-class museums, fashion, cuisine and an atmosphere all its own, Paris is also a city of “many splendors,” as Ernest Hemingway recalled in his memoir, A Moveable Feast. Visit the beloved Musée d’Orsay, shop the biggest designers on the Champs Élysées or the boutiques in Le Marais, take in the view atop the Eiffel Tower, or even plan a day trip to Versailles Palace.  Join us for une belle soirée en Paris!

William H. Fredlund, the Director of the Institute, obtained his B.A. and M.A. from UCLA, where he specialized in European history and art history. He studied in Italy on a Fulbright Fellowship and completed a double Ph.D. in history and humanities at Stanford, specializing in Renaissance Italy. Dr. Fredlund has taught for UCLA, the University of Florence, Stanford, and UCSC Extension.
