  Inclusion and Exclusion in French Urban Planning Projects



  Research Interest 


She is studying French urban planning projects centred on Paris and the ideas behind them: from the 19th to the 21st century, the logic behind the acceptance of projects is deeply related to the conditions of the time and the region, each with its own mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion. While unable to travel abroad due to Covid-19, she began also researching Hokkaido, her birthplace, and now considers issues of colonisation and discrimination that persist to the present day through artworks that she was familiar with.
