Susciter la parole des cyclistes : traces GPS et vidéos au service de l’entretien

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 [...]

Domestic space as a social total fact. Thinking by using photography. Peer review

Irène Sartoretti et Roberto Manuelli | 26.09.2020

How to produce a photographic essay with an esthetic, but also scientific, value? This is the starting point of our research on domestic interiors. By using photography as a method of analysis and at the same time communication, we wanted to explore links between furniture and great contemporary social issues, such as fragmentation of biographies, increasing mobilities, expanding possibilities of choice and ethic of individual performance. This article focuses on methodological choices regarding the use of photograph (comparability, neutrality [...]

Théâtre, ethnoscénologie & sociologie réflexive Peer review

Jean-Marie Pradier | 24.08.2020

Ethnoscenology considers theater as a cultural subset (historical and local) of organized human performing forms OHPF. The theater has enjoyed a particular expansion in the wake of Western economic, political and scientific influence over the world. This art become less influential in terms of attendance by the public; nevertheless, it is now incorporated as a practice in multiple fields of social life. The common French vocabulary bears the trace of its prominence in the society. The word theater has [...]

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. [...]

Gentrification, co-presence or social mix? Changes and permanence in the centre of São Paulo Peer review

Vitor Pessoa Colombo et Gian Paolo Torricelli | 17.07.2020

Can we speak of gentrification in the centre of São Paulo (Brazil)? Or is it rather a situation of copresence between different social classes? Starting from a brief analysis of the Latin-American context and the situation of the urban centres in this region, we address the recent changes in the socio-spatial dynamics of the city of São Paulo. In order to assess the possibility of a gentrification process in its historical centre, we propose a spatial analysis of the [...]

Time vulnerability: refereeing to keep the pace. 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. [...]

MSFS2

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 [...]

Mal-habiter et malaise dans l’habiter : Pour un dialogue entre géographie et psychanalyse

Frédéric Vinot | 17.07.2020

In response to the formula of “mal-habiter” proposed by O. Lazzarotti, X. Bernier and J. Levy (2020), the author puts forward the hypothesis of “malaise dans l’habiter”, with particular reference to theories of Freud and Lacan. Where “mal-habiter” indicates dissatisfaction on the part of the inhabitant with regard to external and social conditions, “malaise dans l’habiter” indicates a dissatisfaction inherent in the very fact of dwelling, a trace of an uninhabitable in the heart of dwelling. The different possibilities [...]

Spatialités et temporalités du handicap II : une typologie systématique des taxes temporelles

Enka Blanchard | 17.06.2020

Living with a disability involves handling many costs that the general population is not aware of, which have recently been denounced in the online #CripTax campaign. Those costs can be split into many categories, the principal ones being financial costs (from buying specialised equipment to higher insurance premiums), psychological costs (with increased stress and mental loads), and finally temporal costs. Those temporal costs can be organised into a hierarchy, starting with the simplest costs arising from decreased efficiency when [...]
