Abstract: Blending urban history,technological history and environmental history,urban environmental history has its origin in the 1980 s. Over the past decades,it has witnessed tremendous growth and become a booming and attractive field among French historians today. Its study focuses on several areas: urban water supply,industrial pollution,garbage disposal,sewerage system and related social problems. By taking the dual approach of technological-ecological and sociocultural analysis,it studies specifically such topics as resource utilization,material recycling,policy on technology,environmental challenges and technological innovation. Influenced by Braudelian longue durée perspective,it adopts a multidisciplinary and synthetical approach in research. Having the potential to break out of the disciplinary boundaries of technological history,ecological history and sociocultural history,the study of urban environmental history in today’s France has inspired us to make more methodological innovations in historical study.
