Présentation

Los estudios sobre la noche no cesan de multiplicarse en el ámbito académico. Las temáticas de investigación sobre la noche cubren actualmente un gran espectro: estudios sobre la protección del cielo nocturno (RENOIR), sociología política de la noche (CANDELA), turismo y noche (LXNIGHTS), historia de la noche, antropología de la noche, trabajo nocturno, arte y noche en Asia, musica popular y noche. Paralelamente, existen cada vez mas iniciativas públicas y privadas enfocadas en la noche : gestión de la vida nocturna, iluminación nocturna inteligente, servicios nocturnos, derecho a la noche, federaciones de profesionales…

El campo de investigación sobre la noche (night studies) puede ser datados a principios del 2010, bajo un enfoque de la economía nocturna (night time economy) y de los estudios culturales (cultural studies). Sin embargo, un número importante de estudios sobre y de la noche han sido realizados desde los años setenta, sobre todo bajo un enfoque antropológico y etnografíco. De igual manera, los estudios sobre las representaciones de la noche en la producción grafica, cinematográfica y literario han sido abordados desde hace tres décadas.

Sesión 5 (28 de octubre 2020)

  • Manuel García Ruíz (Centro de Investigação e Estudos de Sociologia, Lisboa), “Lights on Romania: impacts of a light art circuit”

In the last twenty years the development of festivals of light seems to have been institutionalized, being able to find them in all municipalities, regardless of the region we have in scope. The adoption of this format responds to different public policies, the most common is culture promotion, or seasonality reactivation. However, many of these activities are not initiated by local authorities, but by associations, individuals, or companies, whose motivations and agendas differ, from those of promoting the municipality. In fact, we can find events that are organized (orgnise) with the intention of educating the City Council, endorse creativity and promote creative economies as new formulas for urban regeneration. In this direction we find Lights on Romania, an independent (indipendent) festival of light that aims to boost local talent, while promoting night economies. LOR began with the suspicion of the local power, but demonstrated its great impact, renewing (reneing) new editions and being today one of the best considered events in Transylvania. Today, I will present the result of the fieldwork carried out in Cluj Napoca in 2018, contextualizing the festival's emergence (imergence), its objectives and its impact. The latter will be explained with the presentation of the results of an exploratory survey to the public (n = 166 people took part in the survey) regarding their consumption habits during the festival.

  • Chiara Vitrano (Swedish Knowledge Centre for Public Transport at Malmö University), «Time-related accessibility inequalities and the urban night»

In the contemporary polyrhythmic city, social actors are asked for more resourcess to access urban opportunities. The ability to be mobile and to access jobs and services in the city is hampered by the need to perform less predictable and multidirectional transfers within twenty-four hours. Transport-related disadvantage increases the risk of social exclusion and affects especially certain groups of actors, shrinking their action space. In particular, the process of “colonization of time” (Melbin, 1977), i.e. the extension of work and leisure to night hours, can lead to time-related transport inequalities if the inadequacy of the public transport supply doesn’t meet the night-workers and users access needs. Hence, accessibility to night-work by public transport emerges as a crucial goal for mobility and urban time policies aimed at tackling social inequalities. The presentation shows some results from a secondary analysis about night-work in Italy and proposes a tool to analyse the gaps in night-time accessibility by public transport based on the available spatio-temporal data. The tool allows visualizing simultaneously the distribution and the opening hours of night activities, the spatiotemporal supply of public transport, and their variation during the night. An analysis conducted in Milan shows the gaps between the public transport supply and the potential demand: despite the growth of 24/7 services, accessibility levels show a major decrease in the night, especially during weekdays, therefore creating a potential time-related transport disadvantage for those working at night.
