Lucile Biarrotte is conducting her PhD research on the gender dimensions of professional cultures and organizations in French urban planning. Her work is directed by Professor Claire Hancock at the Lab’Urba, Université Paris-Est. She focuses on the Parisian metropolitan region from 1920s to date, with both historical and sociological approaches. For contemporary case studies, she collaborates with various stakeholders (municipal civil servants, associations) in a research-action manner. She previously did research on the program Femmes et Ville of Montréal, Canada, and on the international spreading of “best practices” for women in urban planning. She created a French speaking newsletter called  UrbaGenre, and collaborative bibliographies online such as Genre & urbanisme or Gender & planning.
