Annuaire du Centre coordinateur de la recherche urbaine pour la France – a Foucault query

In Daniel Defert’s ‘Chronologie’/’Chronology’ in Dits et écrits/A Companion to Foucault, he makes reference to a publication entitled Annuaire du Centre coordinateur de la recherche urbaine pour la France. This is in the entry for October 1973  (p. 44/55), and Defert suggests that it published some of the results of research projects conducted by CERFI under Foucault’s sponsorship – the particular project was on “the role of urban facilities in town planning”.

I’ve written about the CERFI projects in some detail, but I can find no trace of this publication. It doesn’t come up in library databases, google, etc. I know about other publications that came from this, and related, work, including François Fourquet and Lion Murard, Les équipments du pouvoir: Villes, Territoires et équipements collectifs, Paris: Union Générale d’Éditions, 1976 (originally an issue of Recherches in 1973). But this publication escapes me.

So, does anyone know about Annuaire du Centre coordinateur de la recherche urbaine pour la France, or what that might be a reference to?

    Reblogged this on Foucault News.

  3. I think that it refers to the Centre’s bibliography of urban research: Fiches analytiques de la recherche urbaine en France (http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/800897912). I can’t find any other serial publication associated with the Centre. Since the December entry notes that these studies were published in the issue of Recherches that you link to above, I don’t take the October entry to indicate anything about publication.

    En Barcelona utilizábamos la versión castellana del libro: Los Equipamientos del poder: ciudades, territorios y equipamientos colectivos. François Fourquet y Lion Murard (eds.). Barcelona : Gustavo Gili, 1978. Recuerdo que había una entrevista (o quizá un coloquio) en el que participaban Deleuze y el propio Foucalult. Creo que esta es la única publicación a la que hace referencia los trabajos del CERFI en los que participó Foucault.
