Qui métrise quoi ?

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 01.04.2021

The widespread use of GPS in route planners has opened the field to new relationships with mobility practices. It sometimes leads to mistakes, comical or tragic. This raises the question of our ability to integrate these new technologies without becoming "geographically challenged". This is not an abandonment of competence, but a temporary and agreed delegation of our own metrics. [...]

Les impacts des transformations urbaines sur les représentations sociales des habitants. Peer review

L’exemple du quartier de Teisseire rénové.

Karin Schaeffer et Paulette Duarte | 18.03.2021

This article aims to understand the impacts of urban transformations on the social representations of the inhabitants of so-called «sensitive» neighbourhoods. While the external image of some of these neighbourhoods is still pejorative, do the inhabitants of these neighbourhoods represent their housing and living conditions differently after renovation? How has the urban renewal of neighbourhoods affected the social representations of their inhabitants? What are the reasons behind these impacts? To answer these questions, the authors propose to compare the [...]

Des ignorants qui s’ignorent ?

Olivier Lazzarotti | 17.03.2021

By the originality of the theme and the approach, the work covering the period 1755-1900, is indeed that of Alain Corbin. Passing the discussions on the notion of ignorance, it opens up to both fundamental and contemporary questions on human interrelationships as well as the predictability of the world. [...]

Des rythmes et des chronotopes

Alain Guez et Piero Zanini | 12.03.2021

The aim is to grasp the question of rhythms through an anthropological approach to the experience of urban time as it has emerged from various surveys conducted in Paris and its metropolitan region. Questioning the modalities by which certain "inhabitants" (residents and temporary residents) describe their experiences from a temporal point of view, reveals a set of elements capable of characterizing, qualifying and giving substance to the concrete and/or sensitive modalities through which an experience of time takes shape [...]

Risques et promesses des saturations

Une nouvelle notion pour penser les dynamiques urbaines en sciences sociales

Margaux Vigne | 10.03.2021

Our lifestyles and the urban spaces in which we operate are the theater for the development of multiple and increasing forms of saturation. The texts gathered in this book search to identify, describe and analyze these phenomena, both spatial and temporal or social. Broadly, the challenge of this book is to make saturations a new field of research in social sciences. The challenge has been taken in the sense that, despite the own limits of the book, it shows [...]

L’éternité du présent. Ou les contradictions du réenchantement pentecôtiste à l’œuvre d’une Église pentecôtiste sud-africaine Peer review

Thibaut Dubarry | 22.02.2021

The purpose of this article is to explore the reenchantment of a church in a South African township. Effervescence of entertainment while crossing through worships appears as a new source of holiness. Present seems in that to substitute to the past as an authority able to legitimate the religious. That’s why this transcendence goes beyond the traditional antinomy between holiness and profane, inviting to rethink religion in modern times [...]

The second part of the volume brings together the geopolitical analyzes of Castoriadis on global capitalism. [...]

Observer pour inventer : la ville d’après

Enka BlanchardStéphane GallardoShin Alexandre KosekiCarole LanoixOlivier Lazzarotti et Irène Sartoretti | 11.02.2021

Avec l’apport du rhizome Chôros. Presque 40 ans après, imaginons ce que serait le carrefour Mabillon sous la plume de Perec : “19 mai 2020. 3, 4, non 5 SUV défilent, les conducteurs aux visages masqués, au passage 3 piétons attendent le feu, chacun à distance. A chaque arrêt, la même appréhension : où se place-t-on [...]

La Covid au prisme des minorités vulnérables Peer review

Enka BlanchardZacharie Boubli et Charlotte Lemaistre | 01.02.2021

The Covid-19 pandemic as a collective experience has brought certain minority experiences closer to the majority’s. The most obvious example have been the 2020 lockdowns, which has suddendly given able-bodied individuals the experience of the homeboundedness known to crips. Some other parallels constitute an unexpected positive impact of the pandemic, which has generally increased the level of solidarity in a common ordeal. Nevertheless, most pre-pandemic social vulnerabilities have perpetuated and even worsened. From proven correlations between one’s level of [...]

Tenir le rythme Composer avec la douleur, négocier sa chronicité. Peer review

Luna de Araujo | 15.01.2021

The medical and social recognition and treatments of persistent pain vary according to the diagnosed diseases and the social, economic and family situations in which the affected persons find themselves. Some repetitions and disruptions underlying and common to the experiences of the women who participated in this research nevertheless make it possible to understand the entanglement of the biological, material, practical and structural aspects that shape the chronicity of their pain. Through Flora Weill's story, her painful trajectory and [...]
