The best of our students' itinerary notes

As part of the “Introduction to Urban History” transversal course, which is attended by all our first-year students, students must write a itinerary note. But what is it?
This course, at the intersection between intellectual and practical knowledge of metropolitan issues, provides students common core of historical and historiographical knowledge. It is a general introduction to urban history, focusing on large dynamics structuring urban evolution. The comparative approach will sustain students in improving their knowledge on urban history as well and on the history of the city and urban planning. Lectures and urban site discoveries and visits will face key issues and dynamics that shape the evolution of cities. Innovative for its learning tools, this course articulates lectures, site visits and a methodological workshop.
This innovation also takes place through evaluation procedures. In fact, students must write a narrative essay about a place of their choice and must also carry out an itinerary note. The aim of the latter is to report on a journey, a peregrination in time and its manifestations in the city. In other words, students must create their own itinerary, which will be located in a neighborhood, along a river or a road in the Ile-de-France region, to observe the city and its different historical strata and to write their experiment.
