    The contemporary body and lived space - between the imagination and experience

    Entre imaginaire et expérience

    Ce colloque vise à interroger les rapports entre le corps contemporain et l’espace, dans l’expérience que fait le sujet humain des lieux qu’il occupe, qu’il s’approprie ou qu’il subit, et qui lui servent à aménager son monde. On s’intéressera au jeu qui s’articule dans le corps entre l’espace physique et le lieu vécu, à l’expérience à la fois concrète et culturellement construite de l’environnement par le sujet humain. Partant du point de vue des études littéraires, mais dans un dialogue essentiel avec les autres disciplines des arts et des sciences humaines, on souhaite questionner les représentations et mises en scène du corps contemporain afin de comprendre comment celui-ci se construit en interaction avec l’espace. Quelles relations le corps entretient-il avec son environnement ? En quoi celles-ci sont-elles constituantes ou déstructurantes pour le sujet ? Comment s’élaborent-elles et se manifestent-elles ? Quels imaginaires du corps et de son rapport à l’espace sont véhiculés par les représentations artistiques et littéraires ?

    Tourism Gentrification in the Metropolis

    American Association of Geographers (AAG) Annual Meeting, 21-25 April 2015, Chicago

    This session intends to explain the multiple and complex relationships between tourism and gentrification in the contemporary metropolis. Several questions arise. How does tourism gentrification manifest itself and how does it affect the urban landscapes? What are the impacts for urban design and planning? Who are the actors, the beneficiaries and the victims of tourism gentrification? How do local (tourism) actors cope with tourism gentrification phenomena? What is the impact on local economies, urban functions and services? What are the outcomes for intra-metropolitan territories? What does it mean in terms of metropolitan governance?

    Ambiances in action

    The second International Congress on Ambiances is an international gathering for researchers, artists and players engaged in analyzing the ambiance-related dimensions of the built environment and in the sensory construction of the contemporary world. Many approaches are at work in the field of architectural and urban ambiance, and these multiple contributions nurture its rich diversity. The Congress aims to give voice to this activity, feeding on work exploring new forms of exchange between what is designed and what is experienced, between the measured and the qualified, the projected and the tested, the material and the immaterial. The Congress will be held for four days at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), in Montreal, from 19 to 22 September 2012. It will seek to express advances in learning and new hypotheses proposed by the various disciplines and fields of activity which address the question of ambiances.
