WICE Online - Activities 


Here at WICE, the team is working to try and move as many of our courses as possible online to try and provide continuity to our members here in Paris during the current lock-down period. We are also planning to run a number of online Apero's and short talks to provide our members with community and interesting conversation during the coming weeks.

Our online @peros will run every Tues and Friday 5.30pm-7.30pm, with each one open to all members. Each talk will have a lead topic that will allow us to meet. discuss, learn and hopefully laugh. Please join us for our next Apero. Details below. If you have a suggestion as to a topic please let us know by emailing lectures@wice-paris.org

Stand by to check this page over the coming days as we provide updates on when these online events will take place.

Learn how, after 500 years of Roman rule followed by 500 years of Frankish rule, Paris took on its current configuration of Cité - Ville - Université during the Middle Ages, setting the stage for the great urban planners of the 17th and 19th centuries.
