Abstract

The interdisciplinary colloquium on “Nights of the South” will provide an opportunity for researchers from different disciplines, artists, association leaders, practitioners and elected officials from many countries to take stock of this work on and in the Global South. The aim will be to better understand the evolution of urban and rural nightlife and the ways of living and inhabiting nights at different scales according to cultures, countries, territories, cities; to identify evolutions, tensions, inequalities of access, but also strategies for the development or protection of nights carried out by different actors; and to reflect upon the preferred forms of governance of the night.

Argument

The night, a long-forgotten dimension of the city, is now very much on the agenda. This space-time, subject to pressure, and marked by contrasting representations, is now central to the marking of cities, raising questions having to do with urban planning, ecology, economic development, tourism, governance and daily life. A new interdisciplinary field has taken form around what are called "Night Studies". Strategic approaches to the night are also being deployed in many countries and on different continents, and public policies for the night are emerging at different levels and scales.

Until recent years, research on the night was mainly carried out by teams from the North, and by cities and territories in the same geographical and cultural areas, with the exception of a few metropolises in South America or Asia that were ahead of the curve in considering certain aspects, such as night-time safety, the economic value of the night or its relationship to tourism. Work is currently being carried out in the different linguistic and cultural contexts of the "Global South" and, in particular, in the Maghreb, the Mashreq, sub-Saharan Africa and other regions of the world, without the results of that work being disseminated widely or involving high levels of interaction between researchers.

This interdisciplinary colloquium on "Nights of the South" will provide an opportunity for researchers from different disciplines (planning, anthropology, art, architecture, law, geography, economics, history, engineering sciences, media studies, political science, sociology, urban planning, etc.), artists, association leaders, practitioners and elected officials from many countries to take stock of this work on and in the Global South. The aim will be to better understand the evolution of urban and rural nightlife and the ways of living and inhabiting nights at different scales according to cultures, countries, territories, cities; to identify evolutions, tensions, inequalities of access, but also strategies for the development or protection of nights carried out by different actors; and to reflect upon the preferred forms of governance of the night. Scenarios for the future of the night will also be evaluated, in particular those proposing possible new roles for the night as a space of activity in the face of global warming. We will also be interested in frameworks for observing and analyzing this space-time, for identifying conflicts of use and the innovations under way in different fields.

This questioning is deliberately broad. Which populations are invested in the night? What activities are taking place? What rhythms? What are nights like in particular regions? How are they inhabited? How are they organized? What means of formal or informal transport and mobility are deployed? Where research exists, what are the dominant approaches? What is the place of culture and religion? What do we know about traditions and rituals surrounding the night? What is the relationship of the night to gender and diverse sexualities? What is the place of women? What is the place of the elderly? What is the role of generations in shaping the night? What is the place of the non-human? What kind of cohabitation may we find in the night? What social changes unfold and assert themselves as the night progresses? What developments can be observed? Which organizations are involved? Which of these are new? What are the conflicts over use? What mediations and compromises may be found? What is the future of the night in the Global South? What role does the night play in processes of ecological transition? What are the specificities of urban nights in the South? And finally, how can these reflections contribute to ongoing thinking about the night and how may they circulate in other regions of the world?

To try to answer these questions, several non-exclusive topics will be privileged: the history and recent development of the night; territories and temporalities; events; public spaces and their appropriation; the inhabitants and users of the event; night-time economies; lighting; tensions and conflict;; ecologies and biodiversity; inequalities; the education, training and adaptation of people, organisations and territories; innovations and improvisations; heritage and tourism, exploitation and preservation; public policies and governance, but also methodological approaches to the night .... In addition to the sample topics offered here, all proposals concerning "Nights of the South" will be carefully evaluated, regardless of their disciplinary and geographical origins.

The exchanges that will take place in Fez (Morocco) will allow us to highlight this research and contribute to a better understanding of forms of knowledge that remain overly compartmentalized. These exchanges will also lead to the dissemination of this knowledge beyond the academic sphere. The discovery of the host city and exchanges with local actors will be additional highlights of the conference. This work will enrich the international dynamic at work in the emergence of night studies, and help us to engage with the research and projects of others at new levels.
