*slaps forehead* So I just realized I'm on the school network, which gives me access to JSTOR from my room. So a couple relevant excerpts of the review of that "Générations romantiques" book about 19th century students:
1. Only the "facultés de droit et de médecine" were active. Pharmacy is mentioned, a few times Maison Alfort, but the "faculté de lettres" was not organized, even though there were courses like those of Cousin and Guizot.
2. ...when the government intervened with repressive legislation (1823-1827), Victor Cousin's courses were suspended, although he was only trying to liberalize the regime. Even when his course reopened (1828), professors still had to open their classes by announcing that student associations were forbidden.
Also one of the citations in the review led me straight to THIS
. I don't have time to read it (stupid homework), but it looks awesome for those who speak French.
I also found a link to buy a copy of Générations romantiques
, but it's almost €30. Ouch.
