Les rythmes indisciplinés.

Claire Pelgrims et Armelle Hausser | 23.05.2019

This article encourages us to reflect on the existence of undisciplined rhythms, that is to say the personal manners to flow that come into tension with the tone of a given situation and induce a recomposition of the collective rhythm. This article questions the different devices of the urban design that enforce a rhythm and allow to "set the rhythm" of mobility and experience or, on the contrary, provide affordances to the performing of alternative rhythms. In the first [...]

Agrandir la parole des habitants. Peer review

Laetitia Overney | 17.05.2019

This paper proposes a return visit. It describes an ethnographic field investigation in La Duchère, a public housing estate in Lyon concerned by an urban renewal programme, during the 2000s. Taking a position on the conflict situation between the public authorities, who defend the urban project, and the inhabitants’ mobilizations to amend it : how to do it ? Making the inhabitants’ voices and activities public : how to do it ? Ten years later, the ethnograph reads again [...]

Les techniques du corps, des compétences pour faire avec de l’espace. Peer review

Léopold Lucas | 16.05.2019

This paper offers a discussion about the integration of the « techniques of the body » within a geography of action. The main idea is to define « skills » as the mastery of body techniques. We argue that this mastery gives individuals a capacity of adaptation to cope with space they do not know yet. More precisely, the article discusses the relevance of Marcel Mauss’ proposition, especially in the light of the reading established by Tim Ingold. This [...]

Économie des rythmes urbains. Peer review

Yves Crozet | 09.05.2019

The economics of urban rhythms tell us that cities are characterized by a double scarcity, that of time for individuals, that of space for the community. The former, because of the increase of their income, seek to intensify their activity programs. For this they develop their mobility at the risk of causing traffic congestion. Public policies are therefore in charge of managing the scarcity of space, so that individual mobility is part of a collective process of production. But [...]

Pourquoi les SDF meurent dans les rues ? Peer review

Stéphane Rullac | 03.05.2019

How to explain the existence of thousands of homeless people on the streets, whose residentialization of the public space causes the death of hundreds of them each year ? Why does the social body authorize such a social rule with dramatic consequences, despite the horror it provokes ? According to which norm we all accept this modality of social functioning, which is perpetuated since 1992 ? It is with the combined reading of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Michel Foucault and Robert [...]

Corps et spatialités. Peer review

Les spatialités en questions.

Vincent CoëfféChristophe Guibert et Benjamin Taunay | 25.04.2019

The body is an "object" whose status is problematic since at least Antiquity in the "Western tradition". First approached by philosophers, whose representations are historically differentiated, it was then invested by other human and social sciences, which have remained most often silent on the relationship between body and spatiality. The geographers, for their part, have kept away from this "object", but the question of the body has become an epistemological issue, especially for those who have invested the concept [...]

Croiser les disciplines, se croiser dans l’indiscipline.

Dialogue autour de la notion de rythme.

Juliana GonzálezLucien Delley et Laurie Daffe | 17.04.2019

As polysemous and intangible as the notion of "rhythm" might be, one must note its capacity to make diverse disciplines (such as geography, literature, biology, dance, sociology or economy) work and speak together. Wishing to pursue this dialogue, can the specific conditions to build a common reflection and the production of an "undisciplined knowledge" be identified ? In light of the seminar "Urban Rhythms" – that took place in Lausanne from 8 to 10 November 2017 –, our reflection [...]

Usages sociaux et spatialités du bronzage en Chine. Peer review

Être dans la norme vs. être à contre-norme.

Vincent CoëfféChristophe Guibert et Benjamin Taunay | 11.04.2019

Skin is a marker of historically constructed social and cultural norms, and embodies the tensions that may exist between what individuals and societies consider "normal" and "abnormal". If white skin in China is a socially shared aesthetic referent, sunbathing can be analysed here as an a priori deviant practice. The objective of this article is thus to understand, through the case of tanning, the social uses of the body, especially in public spaces in Chinese context. The spatiality of [...]

Rythmes ambiants, rythmes de marche. Peer review

Rachel Thomas | 04.04.2019

This text explores the links between walking rhythms and rhythms related to fluctuations in tonalities and intensity of ambiances. It hypothesizes a correlation between walking gaits, the variations in pedestrian attentionality and what I propose to call here "ambient rhythms". The rhythm would not be the cadence or the tempo, but rather a way of flowing atmospheres and bodies. The review of field work carried out in two districts of the city of Grenoble – Europole and Île-Verte – [...]
