Living in small and medium-sized cities: social relationships, residential paths and public action
Although they share common structural characteristics related, in particular, to their position between metropolises and rural areas, to the geography of productive activities or public services, small and medium-sized cities actually constitute a group of heterogeneous cities.
These study days are intended to open up new perspectives on housing issues and ways of living in these cities. They will be organized around three main axes, aiming to open a space for interdisciplinary and international dialogue on these subjects: residential pathways and anchorages; lifestyles, cohabitation patterns and social relationships; housing, settlement and public action.
Organized by a group of young researchers, these study days will be held on January 26 and 27, 2023 at the Condorcet Campus Convention Center in Aubervilliers.
Proposals for papers of 500 words (excluding bibliography) must be submitted before July 1, 2022 on the submission platform: https://habiter-vpm.sciencesconf.org/
From an international perspective, both French and English papers are accepted.
Authors will be informed of the outcome of the evaluation of their proposal in September 2022.
In the perspective of a publication project, a text of approximately 15,000 characters will be requested from the selected authors during December 2022.
