  • Description

    Celebrating the fifty-year anniversary of the Society for French Historical Studies, this Franco-Anglophonic special issue of French Historical Studies considers research on the history of Paris both inside and outside France that highlights innovative work on both sides of the Atlantic.
    The underlying premise for this issue is that Paris—in all its vastness and heterogeneity—calls for many kinds of historical treatment. The articles in this special issue and the recent works they build on provide not only new understandings of Paris, but also suggestive samplings of the historiographical possibilities.

    Contributors. Alain Faure, Annie Fourcaut, David P. Jordan, Dominique Kalifa, Jo Burr Margadant, Ted W. Margadant, Allan Potofsky, Charles Rearick, Danielle Tartakowsky, Rosemary Wakeman
