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 [...]

Rythmes urbains. 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. [...]

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 [...]

Le maker, construction d’une figure politique de l’innovation en Chine urbaine. Peer review

Clément Renaud et Florence Graezer Bideau | 28.02.2020

The present article relates how the figure of the « maker» has become an important figure in China’s recent industrial and urban policies. As Chinese cities are transitioning from a labor-intensive industry (Made in China) to an innovation-centered service economy (Created in China), the country is facing an urgent need for political leadership renewal. The « maker movement » has grown internationally to create new models for businesses and organisations using digital fabrication technologies, with the promise of bringing [...]

Les rythmes de la production urbaine au prisme de l’accélération sociale. Peer review

Sandra Mallet | 07.02.2020

The idea of an advanced social acceleration dominates in contemporary SHS writings. However, the links between this acceleration and the modalities of urban space production are still poorly explored. This article is based on the assumption that the acceleration of societies is linked to several aspects of urban production. Two elements are developed in this text. On the one hand, the evolution of social rhythms leads the actors of the urban fabric to consider the question of urban rhythms. [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]
