Le Grand Syllabus 2016/2017
Course validation : Active participation to class discussion (30% of ﬁnal grade) ; work in groups dealing with the elaboration of research questions and hypotheses (70% of ﬁnal grade). Pedagogical method : 6 classes x 2 hours Course Description : The study of social networks, forged by individual relational contexts, is the core of this course. Interdependency among relational dynamics, regulation processes and economic activity are explored in depth, thereby demonstrating the potentialities of a research program that starts from the appraisal of structural properties. The course has two objectives : the ﬁrst one is to share insights on the main concepts used in social network analysis. Empirical examples will be explored to illustrate how social networks shade light on issues such as unemployment in urban areas or regulatory processes in public policies. The second objective is to allow students to elaborate research hypotheses and analyze empirical data. R (free software) will be used for social network analysis and visualization.

Prerequisite : None. Pedagogical format : Lecture alone Course validation : A short narrative individual essay, to present ideas, emotions and intuitions related to one event, or exhibition, etc., in Paris and its metropolitan region with original photo or sketch. A short minute / note related to an observation on the ground (by groups of two students each) on one of the topics covered in the course (with maps too). Workload : Visit to one exhibition or one event during the semester. Mandatory participation at the urban site discovery, visits and external meetings. Pedagogical method : 9 sessions of 2 hours + 2 site visits. This innovative course will be a journey into urban history and historiography, articulating lectures, ﬁeld visits and exercises to train and develop a historical approach to the city. Course Description : This course is a transversal common course of the Urban School of Sciences Po. At the intersection between intellectual and practical knowledge of metropolitan issues, it provides students common core of historical and historiographical knowledge. How do cities have been historically managed, governed and inhabited ? What are the major urban transformations and their long-term impact on the organization of cities ? What issues in terms of development, conﬂict management and inequality, economic development and mobility ? How urban utopias have they inﬂuenced the town planning ? This common course 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
