UCL Geographers flâneurs for a week?

Second year undergrads explore historical and contemporary Paris

UCL Geographers flâneurs for a week?

For five days in mid-February UCLGeography's second year human geographers explored Paris, including some of its historical geographies as well as questions of contemporary urban change.

They travelled from the centre to the peripheries of the city, including the “new town” of Marne-La-Vallée (home of Disneyland Paris), as well as to the popular street market in the multi-cultural neighbourhood of Belleville.

Student work - a mixture of walks, self-guided explorations of the city and ethnographic investigations - was complemented by guest lectures from local experts at Université Paris-Sorbonne and Université Paris-Est.
