The next reading loop will take place in Studio 49 at Bloc on Wednesday March 14th, 7pm.
Building on the discussions we had last week about the function of municipal dog pounds in the city, we’ve chosen the following texts:
- Matthew Gandy, ‘The Paris sewers and the rationalisation of urban space’
- Victoria E. Thompson, ‘Telling “spatial stories”: Urban Space and Bourgeois Identity in Early Nineteenth-Century Paris’
Suggested extra reading:
Sudipto Ghosh, ‘POCHÉ PARISIENNE: THE INTERIOR URBANITY OF NINETEENTH CENTURY PARIS’, pp. 33-39
Yoshan A. Kennedy-Churnac, ‘The Weight of Words: Discourse, power and the 19th-century prostitute’
