Representing the Shadows of the City of Light
Volume Editors: and
This volume invites you to wander in the shadows of the city of light and discover another, often invisible and silent, Paris. Its chapters explore Parisian margins, including various populations, spaces and practices, as represented in French literature and cinema since 1800. You will get a pick at the Parisians’ criminal activities and nocturnal lives in the 19th-century. You will witness how industrialization and capitalism between the 1850s and the 1970s reshaped the socioeconomic map of Paris by creating or reinforcing spaces of social inequity. You will also meet marginalized groups that are often ignored or neglected in today’s Paris—and the French society—, including the LGBTQ+, black and immigrant communities.
