"Goss's de la ru', goss's du pavé". Enfants et adolescents des milieux populaires dans l'espace public parisien (1882 - début des années 1960)

Abstract : The experience of the young experience is traced according to the acts of the everyday life as well as the the more exceptional events. Until the Great War, and still during the interwar period, working class children maintain a rich relation with the public space, which have numerous roles. Child and adolescent cultures develop. However, after the Second World War, urban life becomes impoverished for the benefit of a utilitarian logic. Every space tends to have an attributed role: in the streets, the movement is divided between two poles, the pavement and the road ; in the green spaces, the relaxation and the leisure activities. Interstitial spaces are built-up and no more available. The constraints get stronger and stronger. Children are gradually rejected of the public spaces places which they occupied and are more and more supervised. At the end of studied period, the street isn't quite the place of the entertaining practices which are confined in spaces used exclusively for this purpose. Children and young people lose gradually their legitimacy to act alone or by themselves. The use of public space contributes to strengthen the categories of age by stressing the differences between children, teenagers and adults in terms of places and activities.
