Social dynamics of city (life) at night
Axis 1 of the Chair is devoted to the analysis of social practices in the city at night.
This area mainly draws on scientific methods used in urban planning, sociology, social psychology, and geography so as to understand and identify urban polarities linked to nocturnal urban practices.
It also focuses on the importance of urban lighting networks in these nocturnal practices and citizens' representations of the night.
Presentation of our research projects
Through different research projects, the purpose of this first axis is to provide a detailed analysis and to take into account the uses and users in the creation of the night-time city and in the management of urban lighting (private and public).
RIGHT TO THE CITY
As part of the Social Dynamics axis, the Right to the city project carries out a sociological study of access, practice and social representations linked to nocturnal temporality.
