La justice spatiale prend place. Peer review

Jacques LévyAna Póvoas et Jean-Nicolas Fauchille | 23.01.2020

The book Théorie de la justice spatiale (2018) was published shortly before the outbreak of the political action of the Yellow Vests. The importance of the connections between space and justice in the public debate that followed shows that the spatial dimension of social life is now perceived in France as a component which cannot be reduced to others, more classic, like the economic and political dimensions. The concepts useful to think such a dimension, that the book advances, [...]

Ce dont on peut parler, il faut le dire. Peer review

Les mutations de l’espace politique et ses enjeux.

Jacques Lévy | 10.01.2020

The major shifts that affect every electoral maps of the West for some decades are crystal-clear and convergent. They make possible simple, formalized propositions. However, some works show a reluctance to embed these changes in these approaches, as our theories of space/politics interactions require significant reshuffles. These novel phenomena generate a disruption that a part of the academic world finds hard to assume. This justifies an overall epistemological reflection on how scientists can encompass novelty in their research practices. [...]

Sous le calque, la carte. Peer review

Denis Retaillé | 20.12.2019

The zenith view offered by the maps may have led to the oblivion of their sources : horizontal experiences of space through the practical and theoretical mastery of distance. This oblivion and the figurative object, received as a higher reality in the form of the trace, were instruments of power. But the profusion of sources that are now imposed by alternative channels calls into question the scientific exercise of cartography, forcing us to return to the horizontal dimension of [...]

À propos d’une proposition : rythmologie de la mobilité.

Olivier Lazzarotti | 05.12.2019

Guillaume Drevon's book addresses the issue of daily mobility. This question allows him to experiment with some methodological approaches, in particular those based on the study of rhythms, « rhythmology ». [...]

Rythmes urbains et santé mentale. Peer review

Marc Winz | 28.11.2019

This essay proposes an exploratory reflection of the heuristic potential of the notion of rhythm, and more precisely that of urban rhythms – a reflection that allows us to examine the relationships between people diagnosed with schizophrenia and the urban environment. The article first proposes a short state of the art of the relationship between cities and psychosis. Then, a brief discussion of the definition and status of the notion of rhythm allows to propose the concept as a [...]

Projeter l’architecture, aux carrefours du numérique et du vivant

| 28.11.2019

Le colloque interroge les manières dont le numérique, par les méthodes qu’il génère, permet d’approcher la complexité des organisations spatiales, qu’elles soient naturelles ou artificielles. Cette interrogation s’inscrit dans le cadre de la production de connaissances et dans celui de l’invention d’organisations nouvelles. L’incidence du numérique sur les organisations humaines au sein des territoires (agricoles, [...]

La communauté territorialisée No TAV de la basse vallée de Suse (Italie). Peer review

Marina Soubirou et Nicolas Buclet | 27.11.2019

This paper examines the nature of the relationships between the inhabitants of the lower Susa Valley. Beyond their geographical proximity, they seem to be linked by bonds of cooperation forged through nearly half a century of local struggles, and they share a collective aspiration for strong sustainability. Because of these observations, we propose the notion of territorialized community, as the notions of territory and proximities are not sufficiently specific to describe the links uniting the Low-Valsusans and their space. [...]

Esthétique et critique

| 19.11.2019

L’initiative de cet atelier de recherche découle de l’urgent besoin de circonscrire et de redéfinir le rôle de l’esthétique, des arts et de leur théorisation aujourd’hui, tant par rapport aux autres formations du savoir que par rapport à nos sociétés contemporaines en général. Quelles sont les fonctions critiques de l’esthétique aujourd’hui ? Comment l’enquête sur [...]
