Les représentations spatiales de la ville et les mobilités quotidiennes au prisme des positions sociales : Une approche socio-cognitive des ségrégations socio-spatiales

Pierre Dias
Abstract : Ever since the earliest forms of urbanism, cities have been shaped by ideological constructs that impact the everyday life of individuals and socio-spatial segregations. This PhD thesis focuses specifically on how positions in the social structure are objectified in the representations and everyday practice of urban space. Based on study of five different socio-spatial representations among University of Strasbourg staffers, it evidences a principle of structural homology between the cognitive, spatial and social dimensions of the individual-environment relationship. Some groups have a functional relationship to the city that reflects the complexity of the places they frequent. Conversely, others have an evaluative relationship that focuses on ‘emblematic’ places. These two relationships are markers of these groups’ social identities. Whereas the former are dominated and may seek to enhance their status through their practices, the latter are dominant and do so by making reference to the global city and comparing their city to others. The identity stakes of socially internalized spatial practices and representations ultimately contribute to segregation.
