    Rethinking Precarious Neighborhoods

    Works, paths and interventions

    The international conference "Rethinking Precarious Neighbourhoods" will be organised following two major thematics. First, it will reread and analyse pioneer works on constitution and meanings of precarious habitat, including how ideas and concepts have been mediatized. On a second hand, it will explore the new tendencies of research on these spatial entites and their developments, focusing on land tenure security.

    Villes et conflits : hier, aujourd’hui, demain

    Journée des jeunes américanistes 2015

    Les conflits interrogent et mettent en débat les manières de faire et de vivre en ville. Ils offrent une entrée pour l’analyse des logiques d’action des acteurs et permettent d’explorer les rapports de pouvoir, les représentations sociales, les dimensions politiques de l’urbain. Les revendications des groupes sociaux et les dispositifs de gouvernances – telles la participation et la démocratie - sont particulièrement bien mis en relief par l’analyse des conflits. Les approches diachroniques révèlent les objets et les enjeux majeurs des luttes et mettent en évidence les processus et les ruptures qui caractérisent les dynamiques urbaines. Interroger les conflits contemporains (mobilisations globales, mouvement des places, usage des réseaux sociaux…) depuis les Amériques apporterait aussi des éclairages sur les dynamiques contemporaines de la région.

  • Call for papers - Sociology

    Sociology of suburbanization

    Special edition Revue française de sociologie

    In France, in the United States and in other developed countries, even in many developing countries, these suburban areas have been the topics of numerous studies, including the reasons and the consequences of urban spread. Of course, sociologists take part in these studies, even though the main sociological concerns and debates are not yet to the fore. This call for papers aims to mobilize the community of sociologists by asking four important questions : What is the subject under discussion ? What are the suburban lifestyles ? What are the underlying factors of suburbanization ? What changes have there been in urban sociology ?
