The Disneyland Classroom

One of the adjustments that we have had to make this term is teaching and learning in places that weren’t exactly set up as classrooms — museums, parks, monuments, even sidewalks.  But certainly the most unusual classroom space so far has been Main Street USA of Disneyland Paris, where we went on Thursday to learn about urban space, tourism, and cultural adaptation.  Our guest professor was Thibaut Clément, maître des conférences at Université Paris Sorbonne-Paris IV, who studies American civilization and Disney in particular.  As it turns out, the gazebo on Main Street functions quite well as a lectern.

Apparently the gift shop can also be used as a classroom.
