    The social dimensions of cognitive cartography

    Cartotête fourth study day

    Cognitive representations of geographical space are often studied in order to better understand how individuals perceive and deal with everyday spatial problems (Down and Stea, 1977), including orientation, trip planning or navigation. Since these works focus particularly on the functional dimension of such spatial representations, maps are read in a literal, rather than metaphorical perspective. In addition, individual geographical experiences, both direct (trips and visited places) or indirect (spatial information) is considered as the main factor contributing to their construction. Therefore, this “cognitive tool” is essentially considered as an individual and personal construction.

    Banlieues : quelles représentations contemporaines des quartiers « sensibles » ?

    Depuis les trente dernières années, le mot banlieue désigne l’inscription territoriale d’une question sociale, comme le souligne l’historienne experte de la banlieue parisienne Annie Fourcaut. Très en vogue dans les débats médiatiques et politiques, notamment depuis les premières émeutes urbaines médiatisées des années 1990 jusqu’à arriver aux plus violentes en 2005, les banlieues entendues comme quartiers « sensibles », semblent rassembler autour d’elles et de leur jeunesse surtout, les connotations les plus disparates et péjoratives : paupérisation socio / économique, ségrégation résidentielle, dégradation du bâtiment, violence et délinquance. Le projet de ce colloque s’inscrit dans ce contexte d’actualité et vise à réfléchir sur les représentations sociales et artistiques contemporaines de ces lieux, incluant la littérature et les arts visuels tels que le cinéma, la photographie et les arts urbains.
