Looking for Private Space or Entire Home | Open to House Sitting
Monthly Budget: Minimum EUR €850 | Maximum EUR €1200
Last Updated 11 days ago


My name is Paige and I'm a PhD candidate in the history department at the University of Pennsylvania. Before that, I studied at the University of Chicago. I will be in Paris for most of the upcoming academic year for my dissertation research and will be affiliated with the Centre de Sociologie des Organisations at SciencesPo during my stay. I've travelled to Paris frequently for my research and I'm delighted to return for a longer stay (especially after my research trip was delayed by a year!). Some of my research plans are up in the air and I'm unsure how many months I'll need to be in Paris. I would happily commit to a six-month lease from September 2020 to March 2021. I would also be open to offers for the months of September and October. My partner (also a PhD candidate in history) will be with me during that time until he began his own research and will visit me occasionally throughout my stay. I've spent a lot of time in Paris and I love the 10th, 11th, 18th, and 20th arrondissements but I am absolutely open to living elsewhere as long as it is within a 10 minute walk of a metro or bus stop. I will consider studios but would prefer a one-bedroom and an actual bed rather than a sofa bed or futon. Depending on the size, I would consider living in a private room in a shared apartment. I would be very happy to provide references from former landlords and flatmates.

About Me

I am a PhD candidate in History at the University of Pennsylvania. I study modern European intellectual, political, and economic history from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries, with an emphasis on France and its empire. My dissertation, currently, is an intellectual-conceptual history of "the standard of living" (and its French counterpart, niveau de vie). I will be moving to Paris next year to complete my dissertation research and am looking for a place to live along with my partner (also an academic). I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Chicago in 2016. I'm currently based in Philadelphia and have spent lots of time in Paris and Berlin
