Au poil !

De bonnes raisons pour se faire des cheveux

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 30.04.2021

Human hairs are easy to lay out and are strongly mobilised in the social presentation of selves. They have their own language, including synonyms, homonyms, and oxymorons. For a long time, they acted as formidable markers of communal allegiance. They are gradually becoming resources for individuals’ body freedom. [...]

Erreur de navigation en votre (dé)faveur.

Qui métrise quoi ?

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.04.2021

The widespread use of GPS in route planners has opened the field to new relationships with mobility practices. It sometimes leads to mistakes, comical or tragic. This raises the question of our ability to integrate these new technologies without becoming "geographically challenged". This is not an abandonment of competence, but a temporary and agreed delegation of our own metrics. [...]

Des ignorants qui s’ignorent ?

Olivier Lazzarotti | 17.03.2021

By the originality of the theme and the approach, the work covering the period 1755-1900, is indeed that of Alain Corbin. Passing the discussions on the notion of ignorance, it opens up to both fundamental and contemporary questions on human interrelationships as well as the predictability of the world. [...]

Nôtres Dames. Un chantier des mémoires

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.03.2021

The fire at Notre-Dame, during the night of 15 to 16 April 2019, opened the site for its reconstruction. It also freed up words and debate around the various projects presented. As none of them can be understood only in terms of technical solutions, we must ask ourselves what are the meanings and political implications of the proposals. Even more so those of the solution chosen. [...]

Observer pour inventer : la ville d’après

Enka BlanchardStéphane GallardoShin Alexandre KosekiCarole LanoixOlivier Lazzarotti et Irène Sartoretti | 11.02.2021

Avec l’apport du rhizome Chôros. Presque 40 ans après, imaginons ce que serait le carrefour Mabillon sous la plume de Perec : “19 mai 2020. 3, 4, non 5 SUV défilent, les conducteurs aux visages masqués, au passage 3 piétons attendent le feu, chacun à distance. A chaque arrêt, la même appréhension : où se place-t-on [...]

Cueillir les chasseurs, chasser les cueilleurs ? L’humanité face à ses natures.

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.02.2021

An active conflict between those who aim at protecting threatened species and those who advocate for taking care of fragile societies is taking place in African forests and, beyond, in the World. This controversy seems intractable as long as stakeholders stick to antithetical moral injunctions. Dialog pathways can be paved if an ethical debate open to all inhabitants-citizens are be invited can start. [...]

Touche-à-tout

Touchent à tout

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 02.01.2021

The health crisis linked to Sars CoV-2 has profoundly modified the codes and forms of sociability. Beyond the barrier gestures, a different World is taking shape. This text is a poetic exercise to account for all that individuals and social groups have lost and beyond the impoverishment of urbanity in this period. [...]

Une brève histoire de temps

Météo, langages et messages

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.12.2020

A much listened program, no doubt also heard, the weather report whispers daily in the ears of viewers. If the course is strictly marked and walked in, if the remarks seem anecdotal and only detailed. But some other messages, more political, may interfere indirectly. [...]

« Rester chez soi » et habiter le Monde : un casse-tête chinois ? Peer review

Olivier Lazzarotti | 11.11.2020

The CoviD-19 pandemic reveals a singular moment in the World. A new type of inhabitant was invented, that of the confined inhabitants. What does it teach us about the contemporary world? How does it inform us about the importance and the stakes of human habitation? But in what way does it also specifically raise issues that go far beyond it? [...]

Aller nulle part, est-ce aller quelque part ?

Destination grande roue.

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 02.10.2020

In the context of the health crisis of 2020 and the ensuing collapse of air passenger traffic, several companies have successfully offered trips to nowhere. However, traveling without a specific destination is not a new practice, and these forms of mobility deserve to be questioned with regard to their spatial stakes. [...]
