What do the approaches in terms of "Mobility Biographies Research" and "Travel Socialization Studies" teach us about mobility choices over biographical trajectories? Particularly widespread in recent years, research using one or the other approach has focused on the daily choices of spatial mobility of individuals. These two orientations share the objective of wanting to document the mechanisms of learning and changes in behaviour in this area throughout the biographical trajectories. Research claiming to be in one or the [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Connaissances par proximité et rénovation urbaine. Peer review

Bianca BoteaLaëtitia Mongeard et Lise Serra | 08.11.2019

This traversal proposes a multidisciplinary analysis of urban transformations and, in particular, urban renewal from the perspective of the production of knowledge by proximity or familiarity. We want to look at urban renewal as a space of resources, links, actions, categories and cognitive universes in which the researcher participates alongside other field actors. This perspective of analysis, which places the researcher amidst people on the ground, is almost absent from studies on urban renewal in France, despite the profusion [...]

La relation artiste-spectateur face et avec la nudité : une transgression « entre ». Peer review

Pauline Boivineau | 24.10.2019

Interpersonal relationships and intersubjectivity between artists and spectators are an impalpable space, key to the relational artistic plan, which invites us to extend the reflections of N. Bourriaud on what he calls the relational aesthetic. The base of our study is the participant observation of Dévêtu(e), a creation of the Thé à la Rue company, which allowed us to question the hapticity of art and the positionnality of the researcher, so that we can grasp the mobility of the [...]

Une genèse politique de l’antéprédicatif ? Retour sur voile d’ignorance de John Rawls. Peer review

Philippe Rozin | 10.10.2019

In this paper we propose to examine the idea of the veil of ignorance developed in John Rawls’s Theory of Justice. Rawls has shown a particular interest in the notion of denial of interest, or social unconsciousness, largely at the base of the veil of ignorance. While the veil of ignorance tends to eliminate sources of disagreement reflecting self-interest, the extension of justice in the social development of individuals in time is far from being completely elucidated. We discuss [...]
