Évolutions des parcours migratoires et résidentiels des habitants de Bogotá (1993-2009). Peer review

Guillaume Le Roux | 01.06.2017

At the end of the last century, Bogotá, like many other large Latin American cities, saw its population dynamics change as the country progressed in the demographic transition and the urban transition : its growth depended more on the natural growth of the population and the origin and distance of migrations to the capital evolved. This article shows how this new « stage of populating » - a concept whose interest in analysing urban change will be demonstrated - [...]

Cartographier le temps, l’espace d’un moment. Peer review

Carole Lanoix et Véronique Mauron | 15.12.2015

How can one represent time without resorting to animation ? Still images have inhabited cartography for a long time and it is only recently that the trend has changed in favour of dynamic representations. In the light of this development, we propose to revisit the use of a succession of still images to represent time. Continuing the research entitled Cosmographies, conducted at the Chôros laboratory (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, EPFL), we interrogate the techniques, tools and fictions [...]

Le nouvel avatar de l’ancestralité dans l’historiographie malgache. Peer review

Sonia Dheur et Hervé Rakoto Ramiarantsoa | 17.11.2015

Forte de ses avancées techniques récentes et mettant en avant son souci de la santé individuelle humaine, la génétique ne s’est jamais autant intéressée à la relation entre l’apparence physique ou le comportement et la singularité génétique. Dans une approche interdisciplinaire critique et réflexive de l’écriture de l’histoire du métissage à Madagascar par la génétique des populations, nous confrontons l’ordre biologique à l’ordre social, en replaçant les recherches récentes dans la réalité sociale malgache. En abordant la question des [...]

Les musées urbains de la Shoah comme objets d’enjeux géopolitiques et espace-temps de l’entre-deux. Peer review

Dominique Chevalier | 28.04.2014

This paper focuses on the cases of several museums and memorials located within major cities (Berlin, Jerusalem, Montreal, Washington, Budapest and Paris). Building upon these examples, it explores the connections between the construction of the cities’ museums and their geopolitical stakes. It also focuses on how time is spatially accounted for within them. [...]

Les jardins partagés, producteurs vivriers urbains ? Peer review

Éléments de réponse à travers une étude à Paris.

Marie Horn | 21.04.2014

The reports of a permanent rise of the urban population, a possible scarcity of oil in the future, a means of energy mainly used in the transportations of goods and an essential element of intensive farming imply to consider new possibilities regarding production and food transportation in cities. Urban production is envisaged here as an alternative. The study of a “jardin partagé” (the equivalent of a community garden) in Paris, correlated with other experiences of urban gardens in the [...]

La gouvernance métropolitaine à l’épreuve de la mobilité contrainte des « Roms migrants » en région parisienne. Peer review

Olivier Legros et Martin Olivera | 21.03.2014

Cet article, qui combine le regard ethnographique avec l’analyse des politiques publiques et la géographie urbaine, cherche à documenter les politiques en direction des migrants roms en situation précaire en Île-de-France. Jusqu’à présent, la « question rom » n’a pas vraiment fait l’objet de politiques à l’échelle de la région métropolitaine. En revanche, elle a suscité des réactions de l’État et des pouvoirs locaux dont l’attitude a oscillé entre accueil et rejet. Attentifs aux pratiques et aux stratégies résidentielles [...]

Traversées cinématographiques en Bordelais. Peer review

Valérie Kociemba | 10.02.2014

Fiction films and television series shot in the Bordeaux area are the corpus of study of this article. Their study provides a crossing of the urban area rooted in history. The tradition of shooting in Bordeaux is a player in the local economic dynamics. Through fiction, the geographer observes a recomposition of urban transects which highlights the identity elements of the city. These elements contribute to give the town its heritage and its roots in history, its bourgeois character [...]

Littérature et identité postcoloniales kanak : lire, écrire et agir avec Fanon (1969-1973). Peer review

Eddy Banaré | 07.02.2014

In New Caledonia, the abrogation of the “Décret d’Indigénat” in 1946 marked the beginning of the politicization of the Kanak community. Some Kanak leaders, albeit briefly, joined the Communist Party in 1947. However, the effects of this politicization only started to become visible once the first generation of Kanak students came to France in order to complete their studies at French universities. The main objective of this article is to analyze how Frantz Fanon’s thoughts influenced early Kanak emancipatory [...]

Les musiques urbaines, ou la subversion des codes esthétiques occidentaux. Peer review

Régis Meyran | 27.01.2014

The purpose of the present contribution is to provide a way of thinking the wide category of urban musics (including hip-hop, slam, electro and improvised music). Several ethnographic observations have lead the author to the idea that the musical practices and inherent speeches are used by the artists to subvert western aesthetic codes by deconstructing several structural oppositions (such as scholar/popular, imitation/creation, singing/talking...). Moreover, the groups that are socially dominated use these musical technics as a tool for affirming [...]

Traverser les paysages : le plateau de l’Aubrac sur les chemins de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle. Peer review

Sébastien Nageleisen | 20.01.2014

The crossing of the Aubrac plateau is very much appreciated by all hikers/pilgrims going to Santiago de Compostela. This paper uses a collection of pictures as scientific material to study the landscape on offer along this route. Landscapes are described and then compared in order to identify the specificities of the crossing of the Aubrac and beyond and, more generally, to understand how cultural routes transcend landscapes and vice versa. In this original spatial experience, various walking rhythms are [...]
