Habilitation à diriger des recherches

La fabrique des lieux culturels

Abstract : This research invests the relations between cultural phenomena and urban space. Culture is envisaged as a source and expression of urban dynamics. In this empowerment to lead research (HDR), we defend the idea that culture is collective matters, that it is born of the interrelations that people make with their territories, and that it is rooted in places of the city. The object of research constituted by "cultural places" is explored through a geographical interpretation centered on the concepts of location and heterotopy, while integrating the urban environment and the fact that the city constitutes a systemic entity crossed by the movement of the world and affected by various temporalities. Thus, there is a complex interplay of sociological, spatial, environmental, economic and political elements interacting during the production of a cultural site, or when the choice of its location is made, or even when people used the cultural site. This HDR takes a look at cultural places in two stages: defining the cultural places, drawing the outlines and observing the margins on the one hand (Part 1 - Cultural Places in Society, between « heritage-making objects" and urban function), and on the other hand, to explore how cultural places are produced (Part 2 - The production of cultural places: practices, motivations, actors' systems).
