Quand l’écologie entre en ville / when ecology goes to town

22, 23 et 24 janvier 2019 à l’Université de Lausanne

L’écologie urbaine a connu une importante expansion ces dernières années. Ce colloque vise à confronter les regards sur les institutions, mécanismes et valeurs qui ont jusqu’à présent freiné, et désormais stimulent, la production des connaissances écologiques sur la ville, ainsi que sur la diversité des agendas à l’œuvre en écologie urbaine et leurs rapports à l’aménagement et aux politiques de la ville.
Au programme, des conférenciers invités, 3 sessions de communications, une table ronde ainsi que la projection débat du film Natura Urbana avec conférence et présentation de Matthew Gandy (Université de Cambridge) et finalement, une visite de terrain : « Quand les fourmis entrent en ville ».

Urban risks and resilience studies

Du 7 au 12 Avril 2019 à Vienne (Autriche)

This session aims at discussing how researchers, practitioners and professionals are integrating the resilient concept to set up new risk management approaches and to design more resilient and flexible cities to face all types of natural hazards. Indeed, a lot of projects in the EU are now trying to use the concept of resilience to mitigate different types of risks in urban areas. This session represents a great opportunity to exchange on resilient cities and to build up a resilience framework. We are attending presentations combining different disciplines, bringing conceptual elements on resilience but also tangible applications. All methods, frameworks, tools (GIS) designed to reduce risks in cities and integrating the resilience concept are welcome in this session.
From the Urban Resilience Studies part, we are expecting communications questioning the traditional risk management approaches, based on case studies and leading to new approaches based on the concept of resilience.
From the Risk Mapping, communications have to demonstrate how risks are characterized, assessed and mapped at several scales allowing to develop operational spatial decision support systems.

Environmental Justice Conference 2019: ‘Transformative Connections’

Du 2 au 4 juillet 2019 à l’Université d’East Anglia (Royaume-Uni)

This panel hence focusses on the distinctiveness (or lack thereof) of French/francophone approaches to environmental justice. We hope to move this conversation forward by establishing cross-Channel connections between academic environmental justice networks in the UK and in France. We seek empirically or theoretically framed works that engage with topics such as (but not limited to):
• The differences and/or similarities between anglo-american/liberal environmental justice and francophone ‘environmental inequality’ (inégalité environnementale)
• The usefulness/adequacy of anglo-american/liberal environmental justice approaches in francophone contexts
• The potential of French/francophone thought for EJ, including (but not limited to):
– French social theory and post-structuralism (e.g. Bourdieu, Derrida, Deleuze, Foucault, Sartre)
– francophone postcolonial work (e.g. Césaire, Fanon, Mbembe, Senghor, Vergès)
– French degrowth & political ecology (e.g. Gorz, Latouche)
– French gender studies, intersectionality, ecofeminism, and ethics of care (e.g. Fassin, Guétat, Hache, Larrère, Stengers, Zitouni)
• Do EJ struggles in francophone countries generate different political claims?
