FIU HONORS COLLEGE
FRANCE STUDY ABROAD
Students are to compare and contrast themselves to a historical figure interred at Pere Lachaise Cemetery: examine commonalities, highlight differences, and explore ambiguities. Students should particularly explore how the legacy of the chosen person relates to the pursuit of universal human rights or innovation. The innovation can be any discipline-the arts or science.
When in the appropriate location to the figure in the cemetery, each student will make a brief (5 minutes) oral presentation to the class about their selected figure. In addition, students must submit a digital Pere Lachaise as Text version of their project.
These following factors will be considered in determining the project grade.
Familiarity with subject
The nature of the connection between student and subject
The broader context of the student’s reflection (Can others relate to the points made in the project)
Originality of content
Below is a list of figures and events to select from. If the student wishes to select another, that choice needs to be approved by the professor. Each character or event may only be selected by one student.
