Présentation

 

My research focuses on anthropological analysis of urban transformations. The objects of my research are: situations of negotiation and conflict that question the role of social critique in town planning; democratic participation; power relations between institutional and non-institutional actors; collective practices in the context of metropolitan transformation. In terms of epistemology, I am interested in the implications of the use of ethnography in urban projects. I believe that the analysis of collective uses, practices, imaginaries and representations of contemporary cities is a a key methodological challenge for urban planning.
