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 [...]

Une famille, entre habitants et cohabitants.

À propos d’une proposition : rythmologie de la mobilité.

Olivier Lazzarotti | 05.12.2019

Guillaume Drevon's book addresses the issue of daily mobility. This question allows him to experiment with some methodological approaches, in particular those based on the study of rhythms, « rhythmology ». [...]

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 [...]

La communauté territorialisée No TAV de la basse vallée de Suse (Italie). Peer review

Marina Soubirou et Nicolas Buclet | 27.11.2019

This paper examines the nature of the relationships between the inhabitants of the lower Susa Valley. Beyond their geographical proximity, they seem to be linked by bonds of cooperation forged through nearly half a century of local struggles, and they share a collective aspiration for strong sustainability. Because of these observations, we propose the notion of territorialized community, as the notions of territory and proximities are not sufficiently specific to describe the links uniting the Low-Valsusans and their space. [...]

Du travail de l’histoire à la professionnalisation de la raison.

Anheim, Étienne. 2018. Le travail de l’histoire. Paris : Éditions de la Sorbonne, coll. « Itinéraires ».

Hugo Steinmetz | 15.11.2019

Etienne Anheim’s book is the published version of the synthesis thesis constituting his authorization to direct research, supported in 2015. By questioning the historian’s profession in the continuity of Marc Bloch’s work, the author skilfully raises the question of the professional practice of history, the conditions of its teaching and its influence beyond the spheres of research. [...]

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 [...]
