L’affirmation de la mobilité comme norme, comme principe de gestion des distances, comme socle des modes de vie contemporains ou encore comme facteur de recomposition des territorialités, a fait du rapport des sociétés au mouvement un objet d’étude central et transversal de nombreuses disciplines de sciences humaines et sociales...

During three days and three nights a central car park is turned into a vegetable garden by a street theater company ( The Phun) The garden will disappear without warning as suuddenly as it appeared. This article proposes to explore how poetic fiction interacts with the daily use and perceptions of this place by the inhabitants. While the performers are busy growing, watering, picking plants and feeding farm animals the enchantment works and turns ordinary reality into extraordinary reality. [...]

La cyclabilité au cœur de la réflexion sur les pratiques cyclistes

Matthieu AdamNathalie OrtarLuc MerchezGeorges-Henry Laffont et Hervé Rivano | 26.10.2020

Bikeability refers to the capacity of spaces to accommodate, facilitate and secure cycling practices. GIS-based, its evaluation, is built on indicators which are based on projections of what is increasing/decreasing the ability to cycle in a given place. However, the confrontation of these evaluations with the experience of cyclists remains to be built and is the goal of the Véléval project. The survey combines three methodological tools: the measurement of trips thanks to GPS tracks, the analysis of video [...]

Effervescence et enchantement

Rachel BrahyCatherine Bourgeois et Nathalie Zaccaï-Reyners | 16.10.2020

Que permettent d’appréhender et de penser aujourd’hui les notions classiques d’effervescence et d’enchantement dans le champ des sciences humaines et sociales ? Quels types de problématiques sont-elles susceptibles d’éclairer de nos jours ? Leur héritage ouvre-t-il à de nouveaux usages, à de nouvelles compréhensions ? Comment sont-elles bousculées, redessinées, et reliées à d’autres ressources ? C’est à ces [...]

Le jeu de rôle comme espace potentiel : contribution à une anthropologie de l’enchantement Peer review

Isabelle Borsus et Grégory Pogorzelski | 11.09.2020

In this article, we would like to contribute to the drawing of the contours of enchantment as a concept by confronting it to the scene of tabletop role playing game. To this end, we will defend the hypothesis that role playing game could be approached as an enchantment device (dispositif d’enchantement), itself considered as a « potential space » (Belin, 2002) framing and encouraging the emergence of an extra-daily experience. At first, we will discuss the environment of the [...]

Between individual and society, the relationship to space to understand the production of disability process

Meddy Escuriet | 13.08.2020

This article aims to return to the conceptual framework and methodology used to individually objectify, while socially analysing, the relationship to space of people who have suffered acquired brain damage. Moving from a state where they were professionally and socially integrated to a state where they must learn to live with their functional limitations, the life accident that these people suffered has totally redistributed the cards of their existence and redefined the relationships they have with space and society. [...]

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. [...]

Joseph Cacciari | 17.07.2020

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 [...]

Effervescence et enchantement Peer review

Lucien DelleyLuca Pattaroni et Pascal Viot | 10.06.2020

This article questions the notion of effervescence in a crowd gathered during festive or sporting events. Starting from survey of the various theoretical construction of the crowd as an object of knowledge, we criticize conceptions that consider it as an irrational mental fusion and focus on what we propose to call the "public conditions" of the crowd, manifested by the emergence of accountable collective behaviours. Beyond the risks that are generally associated with it, a crowd is an opportunity [...]

David Sayagh | 01.05.2020

Based on a doctoral thesis, this article aims to explore how to capture and report on the differentiated socializations that lead to inequalities in cycling mobility opportunities. This ambition has led to special methodological precautions (against the bias linked to social distance, memory failures, conscious omissions, the "sex of the survey", etc.) and to develop an analysis tool whose main advantage is its heuristic ability to reveal gendered dispositions underlying the strengthening of unequal opportunities. Finally, the approach justifies the [...]
