The combination of high mountains of the Alpes-Maritimes, the sienna-colored Provençal foothills, the dry Mediterranean climate, and the rugged coast of the Côte d’Azur has created one of the world’s most iconic landscapes of Europe. Occupied by Celts, Greeks and Romans, Arabs and Franks, Italians and Germans, visited by millions of tourists, armies, and refugees, the area of Provence is one of the crossroads of Europe. Made famous by the art of Paul Cézanne, Vincent Van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso, the writers Marcel Pagnol and Frédéric Mistral, and now recognized as one of the culinary capitals of the world, Provence offers an ideal site for interdisciplinary education.
Due to concerns for the health and safety of IU students, the “Treks in Provence” class is cancelled for summer 2020. We hope to be able to offer it again in summer 2021.
