At a Glance

Like a turbulent romance, the relationship between Paris and the Eiffel Tower has never been easy. When it was erected for the 1889 World’s Fair, Parisians were horrified. Now, though, it’s impossible to imagine the city without it. Join researcher and Paris guide Nettah Yoeli-Rimmer to learn about historical attitudes to the Eiffel Tower and how successive World’s Fairs transformed Paris.

General Notes

Your online lecture will take place live over the course of 1-2 hours. All times are listed in the EASTERN time zone. If you live in a different time zone, please adjust your schedule accordingly. This live online experience uses Zoom Webinar, an easy-to-use web video service that includes closed captioning. All you need is an Internet connection and your computer. You will receive a confirmation email when you enroll and a reminder email one week, one day, as well as the morning of the event with a link and instructions on how to tune in. You will not be pictured on screen during the lecture, but you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the instructor live using the Q&A box. Unless otherwise noted in the lecture description, all those who enroll in this program can attend the live event and will also receive a recording of the lecture that you can watch any time within two weeks following the live event. This lecture is one in a series of three lectures on World’s Fairs.
