Émotions des usagers et usagères de drogue.

Roxane ScavoMélina GermesMélina Germes et Roxane scavo | 14.09.2021

The aim of this paper is to show how marginalized drug users who frequent low threshold drug facilities inhabit urban spaces in two cities, Bordeaux and Berlin. With a social geography approach informed with sociology of emotions and critical cartography methods, we led emotional mapping interviews and produced cartographic collages from the results. We present the inhabiting topography of each city, the constant production and movement of makeshift homes, as well as the relationships with others from the perspective [...]

Déterminations sociales et trajectoire individuelle. Peer review

L’exemple de Didier Éribon.

Stanislas Deprez et Stanislas Deprez | 26.07.2021

Didier Eribon’s autobiography is a magnificent example of socio-analysis. The present article details the main points: the journey of the defector, the opposition of social classes, feelings of shame, the stakes of school, the place of homosexuality, the role of the intellectual. It also points out a contradiction in the approach: Eribon intends to remain within the framework of a critical sociology, relating the trajectories of the agents to social determinations, but he breaks with this explanation when he [...]

Forme urbaine, rythme et mémoire.   Peer review

Les apports d’une approche par le rythme pour penser les dynamiques mémorielles dans la ville contemporaine. 

Lucia Bordone | 20.07.2021

This article aims to highlight some specific contributions of the notion of rhythm to apprehend dynamics on memory within an urban environment. In particular, it points out how rhythm constitutes an effective operator for thinking about the capacity of certain urban forms to favor or hinder the experience of “being present together” (Boullier, 2010) and, consequently, the possibility of remembering together. Starting from the description of a moment of blocking that occurred during an empirical investigation, the article shows [...]

La ville intelligente ou la recherche de la main invisible des territoires. Peer review

Illustration avec la pandémie de la Covid-19.

Michel Carrard | 16.06.2021

Originating from the work of classical economists during the first industrial revolution, the concept of the invisible hand of the market as a utopia of spontaneous self-regulation of our societies seems to be revived with the concept of the smart city. Emanating from multinational firms, the smart city embodies this self-regulating utopia through digital technologies. In this article, we consider that the invisible hand constitutes an ideal type in the sense of Max Weber, allowing us to make comparisons [...]

Les impacts des transformations urbaines sur les représentations sociales des habitants. Peer review

L’exemple du quartier de Teisseire rénové.

Karin Schaeffer et Paulette Duarte | 18.03.2021

This article aims to understand the impacts of urban transformations on the social representations of the inhabitants of so-called «sensitive» neighbourhoods. While the external image of some of these neighbourhoods is still pejorative, do the inhabitants of these neighbourhoods represent their housing and living conditions differently after renovation? How has the urban renewal of neighbourhoods affected the social representations of their inhabitants? What are the reasons behind these impacts? To answer these questions, the authors propose to compare the [...]

Théâtre, ethnoscénologie & sociologie réflexive Peer review

Jean-Marie Pradier | 24.08.2020

Ethnoscenology considers theater as a cultural subset (historical and local) of organized human performing forms OHPF. The theater has enjoyed a particular expansion in the wake of Western economic, political and scientific influence over the world. This art become less influential in terms of attendance by the public; nevertheless, it is now incorporated as a practice in multiple fields of social life. The common French vocabulary bears the trace of its prominence in the society. The word theater has [...]

Gentrification, co-presence or social mix? Changes and permanence in the centre of São Paulo Peer review

Vitor Pessoa Colombo et Gian Paolo Torricelli | 17.07.2020

Can we speak of gentrification in the centre of São Paulo (Brazil)? Or is it rather a situation of copresence between different social classes? Starting from a brief analysis of the Latin-American context and the situation of the urban centres in this region, we address the recent changes in the socio-spatial dynamics of the city of São Paulo. In order to assess the possibility of a gentrification process in its historical centre, we propose a spatial analysis of the [...]

Time vulnerability: refereeing to keep the pace. Peer review

Alexis GumyPauline Hosotte et Marc-Edouard Schultheiss | 17.07.2020

While accessibility conditions have never been so sound, the social injunctions that materialise at work, at home or during leisure time can lead to various forms of vulnerability with respect to time. This article supports the hypothesis that time vulnerabilities, when enhanced by a situation of high parenting responsibility or automobile dependence, encourage households to implement unique mobility practices. These practices, termed “emerging” in this research, would allow them to keep the intense pace of their daily mobility project. [...]

S’initier au merveilleux. Peer review

Contribution à une socio-anthropologie de l’enchantement à partir de l’étude comparée du « Gamarada » et de la « Communication animale intuitive ».

Robin Susswein et Edgar Tasia | 07.04.2020

Some emotionally intense “wonderful” experiences, which are particularly difficult to qualify by those who experience them, have been studied by sociology and anthropology as “enchantment experiences”. How to qualify this type of experiences? What circumstances can contribute to their emergence? Based on the ethnographic study of two initiatory practices (the “Gamarada” and the “Animal Intuitive Communication”), the authors underline the benefits and the limits of the heuristic model of the "technology of enchantment" built by Halloy and Servais. This [...]

Les dimensions sociales et spatiales du coworking : un état de l’art Peer review

Aurore Flipo et Patricia Lejoux | 03.04.2020

Born in 2005 in San Francisco and spread in Europe in the 2010s, the coworking spaces (CS) have progressively appeared as symbols of the new lifestyles and work processes derived from the digital revolution. This « new economy » has generated both forms of liberation from the spatial and temporal constraints, and new needs of co-presence and social interactions. CS have thus appeared as a potential answer to some of the social and spatial contemporary issues. While coworking as [...]
