    Questioning self-medication

    A socially and geographically situated bricolage

    Treating oneself is a controversial practice: scorned in the name of the health risks it runs, self-treatment may also be praised in the name of the independence it expresses. The messages of public health authorities are at the heart of the controversy, emphasizing risk one moment and their potential for patient responsibility the next. Such contradictory injunctions also affect the practices of care providers. The conference has chosen to allow comparisons and confrontations between these various disciplinary approaches as well as distinct research field sites (North/South, North/North, South/South). These practices and their determinants have to be more finely mapped and analyzed to put these analyses – by definition always partial, and theoretically, historically, and geographically situated – in perspective.

    Sociological appraisal and social changes in Morocco

    Dans ces moments de transitions, sociopolitiques, culturelles et démographiques que connaît le Maroc, le rôle que doivent jouer les sciences sociales est plus que jamais décisif. Car celles-ci permettraient-elles sans doute de saisir et d’analyser les temporalités dans lesquelles se tracent des devenirs à la fois anthropologique et sociopolitique. Le colloque « Bilan  sociologique et changements sociaux au Maroc » qu’organise le B.E.S.M. s’inscrit justement dans cette logique. Il s’agit en plus de faire un bilan synthétique et analytique de l’apport des sciences sociales durant ces deux dernières décennies – relatif aux domaines sociologiques importants sur lesquels elles ont focalisé et des questionnements anthropologiques qu’elles ont ouverts – d’ouvrir un débat interdisciplinaire neuf et critique, à partir de perspectives différentes mais complémentaires, sur les nouvelles dynamiques sociales qui se déploient et se reformulent dans le Maroc d’aujourd’hui. Des dynamiques que nous comptons, en l’occurrence, saisir à travers des pratiques et des processus sociologiques, en donnant à ce terme une dimension globale qui réfère aux expressions religieuses et culturelles, aux articulations politiques et économiques ainsi qu’aux multiples relations entre les catégories individuelles et collectives qui forment la société marocaine.

    Digital Polis

    City versus digital: stakes of a project conjugated in future

    This colloquium aims at contributing to the development of understanding the social dynamics and policies that arise at the crossing point between digital concepts and contemporary urban city as a context. Considering the city as active support of a political and social space mirroring the Greek polis, this scientific event will be registered in anthropology of the relation between “city” and “digital”. Perspectives on dual aspects of this study will focus on the different concepts that characterize their relationships and the stakeholders who are involved. How are the socio-political stakes of the city built through the development of the notions of “digital city”, “smart city”, “city 2.0” or “contributory city”?

    Living, Consuming and Action in Glocal Palestine

    More often than not, Palestine, characterised by conflict, is analysed through the sole lenses of its political or cultural idiosyncrasy. Yet, new ways of living, consuming and acting that are embedded in the global reality, have emerged in the previous years and remained understudied. This global dimension may be understood as an imposed and inescapable reality, yet it is also adopted, integrated, amended and applied to a local dimension, so as to create a purely Palestinian form of it.This event will gather mostly researchers and PhD students in social sciences specialised in Palestine but will also pursue a comparative approach by resorting to other cases in the Middle East, North Africa or Europe. The conference also aims at confronting various approaches at the crossroads between art and science, research and action; it will create the frame for a dialogue between social sciences and the works of artists, architects as well as the new actions and philosophy of citizen and activist societies.

    School and Educational Spaces

    Revue Espaces et Sociétés

    The mass education movements seen in most education systems of the past fifty years have transformed the issues related to school and education spaces. There is a reconstruction of these spaces that questions traditional learning and education missions of the school with broader educational initiatives to meet new problems. This issue focuses on the reorganization of school and educational spaces in relation to local initiatives (local and regional authorities , community associations, popular education movements...) on social and educational issues that mark the contemporary school. In a competitive environment where urban and school areas are increasingly hierarchical, where internal divisions are reinforced, where the external borders are fluid, we question the links between spatial segregation, educational pathways and forms of treatment of new educational issues.

    Combining scientific Expertise with Participation: the Challenge of the European Landscape Convention

    The adoption of the European Landscape Convention (ELC) in 2000 represents a major event in taking landscape into account at the European level. As of June 2013, 38 Council of Europe member states have ratified the Convention. By specifying that landscape is an essential component of the quality of life of Europeans, the Convention is, first and foremost, in line with a territorial dimension. Moreover, a strong foundation of the ELC lies in its specific definition of landscape, notably based on the notion of perception by populations. One of the scientists’ major concerns is therefore how to reconcile objective scientific approaches with the subjective aspect of citizens’ perception. After more than a decade of practice, the Conference will be an opportunity for scientists who have been working in line with the ELC to present the tools developed and to reflect on their tangible, measurable and observable effects.

    Les villes morcelées : quelles approches alternatives pour la rénovation urbaine ?

    Tackling Urban Fragmentation. Alternative Approaches to Urban Regeneration

    This one day conference invites researchers working on initiatives aiming at introducing innovative urban regeneration projects in cities across Europe, particularly cities affected by radical re-modellings over the last twenty years. We are looking for instances of administrative traditions being challenged towards exploratory strategies by lobbying groups of architects/designers, or local communities, or even local governments. This conference wants to explore if and how the expertise of uses from inhabitants and field workers in urban regeneration processes may be integrated to learn about possible ways of challenging the emerging patterns of urban fragmentation.

    Urban Nature through Projects. Towards a new coalition between city and nature

    Intitulé « Nature urbaine en projets », le présent colloque a pour ambition de mieux comprendre et connaître ce qu’il en est du devenir de la ville –sa nature- dès lors qu’elle s’attache à la nature. Car s'il faut bien envisager l’avenir des formes urbaines naturelles –promenades plantées, parcs, jardins- héritées de l’histoire, c’est à l’aune d’une demande sociale de nature, elle-même fluctuante, que cela doit être fait. Et s’il faut dès lors appréhender le devenir des modèles de nature auxquels se réfèrent les architectes, les paysagistes et les urbanistes qui aménagent nos villes en espaces naturels, il convient tout autant d’interroger les mutations du « projet » en tant qu’outil de conception auquel ces professionnels ont recours. Il n’est pas jusque la question de l’ « innovation » architecturale, paysagère et urbanistique qui n’implique la notion de dépassement du présent inhérente aux projets de nature urbaine. Une nouvelle alliance entre nature et ville se dessinerait-elle ?
