Urban planning in Paris after Haussmann
Haussmannization” is too broad a topic for this paper. You’ll need to focus your area of interest. Moreover, your wholly positive view of Paris’ transformation under Napoléon III — from “darkness, danger, and disease” to “shopping, tourists, and citizens” — is rather naïve, given our readings from Clark and Harvey. Perhaps you could focus on the rise of the department store in Paris during these years? That would allow you to think about some of the things you mention here (shopping, tourism, fashion), while keeping a tighter focus and the ability to do more in-depth research.
