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 [...]

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 [...]

Métrologies critiques de l'espace. Peer review

Critical Approaches to Metrology.

Matthieu NoucherIrène Hirt et Xavier Arnauld de Sartre | 21.02.2019

When the construction of a political space demands shared systems of measurement, ensuring that everything is made comparable, coding categories and procedures are brought into place. Attributing singular cases to measurable categories was for a long time a prerogative of the State, but new systems of metrology are now broadening the range of players. With this traversal, we aim to start deconstructing these metrological systems, both old and new, to prompt different readings of the rhetoric behind them. By [...]

Prétopologie et espaces habités. Peer review

Serge Thibault | 06.09.2017

This text presents the contribution of mathematical pretopology to the understanding of the morphology of inhabited spaces, although it can be applied to any type of space. The use of pretopology explains the relative, and not absolute, character of topological dimensions of inhabited spaces, such as interior, exterior, edge, etc. These dimensions are defined using an exploration of space, based on a process of extension which associates to any part a bigger part including it. A change of process [...]

Mobilités changeantes, mobilités intriquées.

Christophe Mincke et Vincent Kaufmann | 29.03.2017

Are we really sure we know what mobility is ? And what about immobility ? These simple questions were the springboard for our reflection, in three steps. The first step led us to study how the definition of mobile and immobile varied over time, and how this occurred in cadence with changes in the representations of space and time. The second step was devoted to examining the nature of the spaces in which mobility can be deployed. We defend [...]

Habiter : Hortense fait tourner l’appareil.

Soichet, Hortense. 2016. Esperem ! Images d’un monde en soi. Paris : Créaphis.

Olivier Lazzarotti | 17.05.2016

The experience of « social photography » that has been led by the photographer Hortense Soichet and the Association d’éducation populaire auprès des femmes (GRAPh-CMI) of the gypsy town of Eperem, near Carcassonne, instigates a reflection on the concept of « dwelling » as reciprocal construction of the inhabitants and the world by revealing a part of the town’s dynamics. [...]

Cartographier le temps, l’espace d’un moment. Peer review

Carole Lanoix et Véronique Mauron | 15.12.2015

How can one represent time without resorting to animation ? Still images have inhabited cartography for a long time and it is only recently that the trend has changed in favour of dynamic representations. In the light of this development, we propose to revisit the use of a succession of still images to represent time. Continuing the research entitled Cosmographies, conducted at the Chôros laboratory (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne, EPFL), we interrogate the techniques, tools and fictions [...]

Réduire la mobilité par la télécommunication : un leurre ?

Sébastien Munafò | 10.11.2015

The thought that information and communications technology can lead to reducing spatial heterogeneity and therefore mobility demand is recurrent. It goes hand in hand with any major technological advance in this field. Faced with this attractive idea, scientists are sometimes invited to highlight empirical evidences that are much more counter-intuitive. [...]

Spatial practices, theoretical implications.

Mathis Stock | 31.03.2015

This article aims at evaluating some of the theoretical implications of the inquiry of the spatial dimensions of practices. First, it raises the question of the adequacy of the use of the term « spatial practice » against the possibility of speaking of spatial dimensions of practices. Second, it evaluates some of the consequences of the growing importance of practices on geographical theory. This article departs from Theodore Schatzki’s proposition in this traversal and thus takes the form of [...]

L’invention partagée.

Lussault, Michel. 2013. L’avènement du Monde. Paris : Seuil.

Jacques Lévy | 27.01.2015

L’avènement du Monde by Michel Lussault offers a substantial and innovative spatial theory of an object, the World. Space is addressed both as a technical system and a society, and each of these approaches generates an overall, panoramic view. In addition, several new notions, such as hyperspatiality and vulnerability, are put forward. The space/spatiality couple is used as a foundation for a revisited geographicity, and globality in the making appears to be a good test to validate this couple. [...]
