    Debating residential subdivisions. Which actors, which forms, which uses?

    1st PhD Workshop - European research program CAPA.CITY

    Within the framework of the research program CAPA.CITY, a PhD workshop is organized around the question of suburban retrofitting. The workshop will notably question the capacities that need to be mobilized and associated, or even hybridized, in order to transform existing residential subdivisions. The originality of this approach lies in the interrogation of creating negotiation spaces between individual, collective and common interests, so that collective capacities could be built between the different actors (inhabitants, professionals, institutions) implicated in the transformation of residential subdivisions.

    Urban governance and its disorders: Corruption in the cities

    The issue of corruption has, of late, become of growing interest to social scientists and historians although research in corruption in urban settings less so and the relationship of corruption to urban governance even less. The complexity of governance as distinct from government has raised questions, particularly since the 1980s, as state governments have sought relationships with private and voluntary actors to manage and deliver services and other public goods.

    Work and Cities

    Debating new forms of work and employment and work organization in cities

    Urbanization has been and remains deeply entrenched with forms of economic organization and of work. Nevertheless, the interdependencies of cities and work have created little dialogue between the fields of urban studies and the sociology of work. Even though work has such a structuring function for everyday lives in cities, we hardly look into cities through the lens of ‘work’, how this structures everyday movements and experiences, the exercise of collective power, or the production and reproduction of social life in the city. This panel aims at bringing together and interrelating these subject areas in order to discuss changing forms of production and work relations in cities. Our main aim is to discuss issues of global urban justice in the sense of urban inequalities arising around the changing spatial and practical manifestations of work.

    The materiality and spatiality of death, burial and commemoration

    Special issue in the Journal “Mortality”

    The interdisciplinary journal Mortality calls for submissions from all disciplines to reflect on the materiality and spatiality of death, burial and commemoration: Death, dying and burial produce artefacts and occur in spatial contexts. The interplay between such materiality, spatiality and the bereaved who commemorate the dead yields interpretations and creates meanings that can change over time. In this special issue we want to publish papers that explore this interplay by going beyond the consideration of simple grave artefacts on the one hand and graveyards as a space on the other hand, to examine the specific interrelationships between materiality, spatiality, the living and the dead.

    Urban Kinships. Everyday Kinship and the making of the City

    “Articulo”, Journal of Urban Research

    Social sciences were long dominated by the notion that cities are places where kinship ties are weakened (Parsons 1955), but this view is widely challenged today. In addressing “urban kinships,” this Articulo special issue aims to surpass the “great divide” (Weber and Dufy 2007) that still separates the study of kinship (reserved for anthropologists and traditional societies) from the study of the city (the favored field site for sociologists and research on the family). At a time when cities are dissolving into “the urban” and blended families are re-defining kinship, this issue suggests studying the co-production of kinship and the city, through an approach focusing on everyday practices.

    Victorians like us – Domesticity and worldliness

    Issue of “Open Cultural Studies”

    From novels to government reports, the Victorians attached unprecedented significance to domesticity. The household was a central institution, and their occupants played out their different roles according to custom and circumstance. Within its sphere, gender, class, economic and political conflicts were played out as the household provided the background for important social practices. These practices ranged from the kitchen to the parlour, from the street to the Houses of Parliament, from the colonial metropole to the British colonial outposts in Africa, Asia, Australia and the Pacific.

    Heritage and experience design in the digital age

    5th hyperheritage international symposium

    The term hyperheritage covers every hybrid cultural heritage environment augmented with digital information inviting us to explore new ways of perceiving, experiencing and practicing cultural heritage. Massive developments on ICT and the unprecedented spread of mobile, location-aware and immersive (augmented and virtual reality) technologies and devices, advocate for the exploration of new forms of human to human, human-computer and human-environment interaction and information communication on cultural heritage. These advances also imply gradually establishing new ways and means to comprehend, access, process, experience and perceive digital and interconnected cultural heritage information on a variety of delivery platforms, devices and environments.

    Geomedia and the City

    Geomedia is an emerging concept that has been deployed to capture a particular technological condition, associated with recent rapid developments in digital technology. As such, it signals to the dialectics of locative media and the mediations of localities. However, the concept of geomedia carries deeper/wider ontological and epistemological registers that transcend the simple twining of geography and media. In this wider sense, geomedia gestures to the expanding interdisciplinary terrain at the crossroads of media studies and geography, where various ontologies and epistemologies of space/time, flows/mobilities and mediation/ mediatization come together. The aim of this special issue is to explore the urban as a key terrain where these ontologies and epistemologies are articulated.

    Inequality and uncertainty: current challenges for cities

    III Mid-Term Conference Of The Urban Sociology Research Network 37 Of European Sociological Association In Madrid (Spain), Uned

    It is not possible to ignore the fact that cities are not only moving, vibrant and flourishing spaces, promising hope for better quality of life, but also accumulate and reflect significant problems. We need to recognise the complexity of economic, political, social, cultural and environmental mechanisms, which strengthen existing inequalities and add a great deal of uncertainty to life in cities and urban spaces of the globalised world. We want to gain a better understanding of the impact and consequences of inequality and uncertainty on the urban arena as much as the responses to current challenges in terms of  both informal and institutional practices.

    Migrant and the City

    Urban Studies and Practices Journal (JUSP), Special issue

    Cities worldwide are major magnets for migrants. Urban environments shape migrants’ experiences in a new locale, whereas migrants contribute to increasing diversity of the city. Due to its extreme complexity and dynamic nature, the reality under the “migrant and the city” interconnection is rarely considered in theoretical accounts, empirical methodologies, or  practical interventions in its full diversity. This special issue of the JUSP aims to harness the elusive reality of this interconnection by bridging both disciplinary and theory-practice gaps and inviting scholars and practitioners to share their reflections on the topic. In this issue, we are especially interested in creating a multifaceted account of integration (or assimilation, incorporation, acculturation) as one of the ways to talk about this interconnection.

    Ideas and ways of heritage: Scientific thought, praxeology and social knowledge in patrimonialisation

    Critical heritage studies have been popularized by way of various disciplines, and several recent studies have emphasized “the infinite specificity of heritage and patrimonialisation”, and at other times, the differentiated paradigms of heritagization, patrimonialisation, heritageification, etc During the session "Ideas and ways of heritage: Scientific thought, praxeology and social knowledge in patrimonialisation"  we will explore conceptions used in heritage-making, as they appear or are particularized in the scientific literature, local expertise and the collective intelligence in various regions of the world.

    Communautés migrantes et espace urbain dans les ports de la Méditerranée, XVIIe-XIXe siècle

    Dixième conférence internationale d'histoire urbaine, Gand, 1er-4 septembre 2010

    Recent research on migrant communities has witnessed a clear shift towards a more sophisticated understanding of the variety of bonds that link minority groups to the society they live in, as well as to their places of origins. Yet, when it comes to the understanding of past migrations, historical discourse still depends in many ways on traditional categories of analysis, that often poorly reflect the profound originality of the situations under study. This session is an attempt to challenge traditional and “ready-to-go” views on the organization of community life among migrants who lived in the Mediterranean port-cities during the late modern period (17th to 19th centuries).

    Quartier et gouvernement urbain dans les villes occidentales de l’époque moderne à nos jours

    Tenth International Conference on Urban History

    Les politiques urbaines ont aujourd’hui tendance à se centrer sur le quartier comme unité d’intervention ; celui-ci est ainsi souvent perçu comme le principe organisateur du développement social urbain. En cherchant à renforcer la présence des centres sociaux, des conseils de quartier, en développant la police de proximité et en encourageant les citadins à s’organiser autour de projets comme le « neighbourhood watch », les autorités locales entendent améliorer la qualité de vie urbaine et consolider la cohésion sociale. Ce faisant, les concepteurs des politiques publiques reprennent à leur compte la notion de quartier, telle qu’elle a été définie par les sciences sociales – unité socio-spatiale cohérente – et espèrent pouvoir à leur tour susciter le développement du lien social dans la ville. Ces politiques posent dès lors la question de la nature même du « quartier », entre concept administratif lié à un projet politique et unité urbaine mouvante, informelle et extrêmement personnelle telle qu’elle est vécue par les usagers.

    Les études d’urbanisme : territoires et usages sociaux des savoirs urbains

    Revue Géocarrefour vol. 85

    Les études d’urbanisme ont ceci d’étonnant que leur multiplicité et les apparentes évidences sur lesquelles elles reposent les rendent comme invisibles aux yeux des observateurs des politiques urbaines. En amont de démarches de planification ou d’opérations d’aménagement de toutes sortes, les études abondent, leurs formes et appellations sont multiples. Les producteurs d’études sont tout aussi divers : collectivités, services de l’État, organismes publics ou privés dont l’étude est la raison d’être, mais aussi associations ou, parfois, particuliers. La diversification du « marché des études » d’urbanisme contraste avec le relatif silence qui entoure pourtant le monde des études dans la communauté scientifique. Le présent appel à contributions pour la revue Géocarrefour entend justement susciter une réflexion pluridisciplinaire sur ce point souvent peu considéré par la recherche récente sur l’urbanisme et l’aménagement des villes.

    Roms migrants en ville : pratiques et politiques

    Proposition d’appel à articles pour Géocarrefour (vol.86, 2011)

    Ces dernières années, les villes d’Europe occidentale ont été marquées par l’arrivée de nouvelles populations, originaires de l’Europe centrale ou des Balkans et appartenant aux minorités Rom. Ces personnes et ces groupes, souvent désignés comme « Roms migrants », ont une très forte visibilité dans l’espace public urbain. Ce numéro thématique de la revue Géocarrefour vise à explorer les différentes formes d’interaction entre les pratiques de ces migrants et les politiques liées à l’encadrement des déplacements et/ou à l’accueil des Roms migrants dans les villes européennes.
