Croiser les disciplines, se croiser dans l’indiscipline. Peer review

Dialogue autour de la notion de rythme.

Juliana GonzálezLucien Delley et Laurie Daffe | 17.04.2019

As polysemous and intangible as the notion of "rhythm" might be, one must note its capacity to make diverse disciplines (such as geography, literature, biology, dance, sociology or economy) work and speak together. Wishing to pursue this dialogue, can the specific conditions to build a common reflection and the production of an "undisciplined knowledge" be identified ? In light of the seminar "Urban Rhythms" – that took place in Lausanne from 8 to 10 November 2017 –, our reflection [...]

Creation in psychiatric environments: objects in process?

| 17.04.2019

Depuis plus de deux siècles, des objets sont créés en institutions psychiatriques et autres lieux de soin. Ils sont de toutes sortes, dessins, peintures, modelages et sculptures, écrits, tapisserie, etc., et de tous formats. D’abord négligés, relégués dans des lieux d’exclusion et dans l’exil de la raison, certains doivent à quelques passeurs d’avoir franchi la [...]

Usages sociaux et spatialités du bronzage en Chine. Peer review

Être dans la norme vs. être à contre-norme.

Vincent CoëfféChristophe Guibert et Benjamin Taunay | 11.04.2019

Skin is a marker of historically constructed social and cultural norms, and embodies the tensions that may exist between what individuals and societies consider "normal" and "abnormal". If white skin in China is a socially shared aesthetic referent, sunbathing can be analysed here as an a priori deviant practice. The objective of this article is thus to understand, through the case of tanning, the social uses of the body, especially in public spaces in Chinese context. The spatiality of [...]

Rythmes ambiants, rythmes de marche. Peer review

Rachel Thomas | 04.04.2019

This text explores the links between walking rhythms and rhythms related to fluctuations in tonalities and intensity of ambiances. It hypothesizes a correlation between walking gaits, the variations in pedestrian attentionality and what I propose to call here "ambient rhythms". The rhythm would not be the cadence or the tempo, but rather a way of flowing atmospheres and bodies. The review of field work carried out in two districts of the city of Grenoble – Europole and Île-Verte – [...]

Petite géographie de la co-présence. Peer review

Une première approche comparée des pratiques spatiales de consommation des touristes et habitants à partir des réseaux sociaux numériques sur l’île de Xiamen (Chine).

Luc GwiazdzinskiWenbo Hu et Zhong-Bin Li | 14.03.2019

Conventional statistical data rarely provide information on the different "present populations" that coexist in cities and in regions so as to be able to separate, for example, tourists from permanent residents. It is difficult to analyse the spatio-temporal behaviour of these different populations, to identify potential conflicts and to imagine possible futures. The research proposes to overcome these limits by using the data provided by the Chinese social network SINA Micro-blog. A new geography of co-presence emerges and allows [...]

Lisbonne, 21e siècle. Peer review

Vers un nouvel espace référentiel du centre urbain : emprise marchande, aménagement certifié, libéralisme multiculturel.

Marc Breviglieri | 07.03.2019

This text questions the dynamics of urban government, which claims to guarantee a set of individual and public goods through the standard and expert certification procedures. It pays attention to the economic properties of standards and the normative re-description of reality they operate. It focuses in particular on the city of Lisbon which, like other metropolitan areas in southern Europe, is planning redevelopment operations under the pressure of the economic and financial crisis. It discusses the advent of a [...]

Tracer l’émergence des foules et des publics en ligne et sur site. Peer review

Dominique Boullier | 22.02.2019

Events are exceptional moments in urban rhythms and attract a lot of attention. However, they are not easily traceable, and social sciences clearly favored long duration phenomena (structural effects) or cycles (as in opinion trends). Thanks to the traces that we leave on digital networks, rapidly emerging collective behaviors can now be accounted for. They may even be related to on site events. Qualities of the constructed environments (containers) and attention attractors (contenants) can be combined to generate eurythmic [...]

Métrologies critiques de l'espace. Peer review

Critical Approaches to Metrology.

Matthieu NoucherIrène Hirt et Xavier Arnauld de Sartre | 21.02.2019

When the construction of a political space demands shared systems of measurement, ensuring that everything is made comparable, coding categories and procedures are brought into place. Attributing singular cases to measurable categories was for a long time a prerogative of the State, but new systems of metrology are now broadening the range of players. With this traversal, we aim to start deconstructing these metrological systems, both old and new, to prompt different readings of the rhetoric behind them. By [...]

La fabrique des projets de grands territoires : un essai de rythmanalyse. Peer review

Lisa Lévy | 15.02.2019

This article proposes to enter the black box of the large territories making process, by means of a rhythm analysis. We examine the rhythmic trajectory of three projects, a French one (Pôle d'Orly) and two Swiss ones (the Geneva and Lausanne agglomeration projects), using the notion of improvisation. Rhythm analysis allows us to show how improvisation, beyond metaphor, qualifies this trajectory. We will first focus on the temporal trajectory of our projects, i.e. their emergence and deployment over time [...]
