Diplômes et diplômés en urbanisme : Paris 1919-1969

Abstract : The aim of the present thesis is to contribute to the knowledge of l’Ecole des Hautes Études Urbaines [School of Advanced Urban Studies] (1919-1924) and l’Institut d'Urbanisme de l'Université Paris [Urban Planning Institute of the University of Paris] (1924 -1919), exploring in particular the completion studies carried out between the early 1920s and the 1970s. The subject of study of this research comprises this body of works, that is, the urban planning thesis. Indeed, the theses are the result of extensive studies that lead to a certificate named «Diplôme d'étude spéciales d'Urbanisme» ["Certificate of special study of Urban Planning], delivered by l’Université de Paris.Our contribution aims to show the nature of the completion pedagogical exercises carried out and examined in these two institutions between 1922 and 1972 and, at the same time, to show the profiles of these certificates in urban planning during the 20th century and the relations between the subjects and the education systems in that particular area of urban planning. It was carried out from the information of different archives of Paris, but mainly from the resources of the Bibliothèque Poëte et Sellier, fonds historique de l'Ecole d'Urbanisme de Paris (EUP), formerly known as Fonds ancien de l'IUP.These theses were a specific product of l'EHEU/IUUP and constitute an essential and baseline theoretical body, which gives clues about the history of urbanism in France and in different American, European, African and Asian countries, because, on the one hand, are within a long period of the evolution of urbanism doctrines and, on the other hand, were carried out by students from different countries, which through time created a complex network of knowledge, understanding and know-how.
