Pedagogical Method : 12 weeks. Lectures + discussions. Course Description : This course examines the diversity of contemporary Southeast Asian urban trajectories in a multidisciplinary perspective. Taking ground in premodern and colonial history, it ﬁrst reframes the urban problematics faced by Southeast Asian cities in the sub-ﬁeld of urban studies in the 'global south' (weeks 1-4). Then, it develops an actor-centered approach to the study of urban governance and urbanization (week 5-8). Attention is paid to urban and territorial planning, the politics of urban land, social justice, and urban informality. Finally, it draws on urban anthropology and sociology (weeks 9-12) and looks at cities as ﬁelds of contestations and negotiations that bring onto the stage plural urban visions, beliefs, interests, and objectives. It shows how these struggles reshufﬂe power balances between the State, the local authorities, the private sector, the civil society, and ordinary citizens.

Teachers : Quentin RAMOND (Doctorant). Prerequisite : Students are expected to have a C1 level in English, some background in urban sociology, a good knowledge in quantitative methods and to manage elemental statistical skills (descriptive statistics, hypothesis testing). They should have reﬂected on the use of data visualization and mapping to support the understanding of urban inequalities at various spatial scales. Pedagogical Format : Elective Senior lecturers : Quentin RAMOND (Doctorant). Course validation : 4 credits for this module. Participation (10%) : Students are expected to attend every class prepared to discuss the readings. From one session to another, students should prepare the data or GIS ﬁles if they are asked to. Final paper (60%) : Groups of two or three students will have to write a 10 to 15-pages ﬁnal paper investigating social changes and residential segregation in a city, using the data and methods studied in class (indexes, spatial autocorrelation, classiﬁcations, maps). The paper requires an introduction, a short literature review, a presentation of the city studied, a research question, a description of the data and methods, the presentation of the results, and a conclusion. Students from Master STU will have to realize their analysis on French “villes moyennes” (choose one in the list below). Villes moyennes are cities which count between 20,000 and 100,000 inhabitants. Often absent from academic research, they present some speciﬁcities compared to metropolitan areas. Their patterns of
