Les effets de lieu au quotidien

Abstract : While the literature on place effects often emphasizes the distinction between people-based and place-based attributes, the present research explores daily interactions between people and places. Through the study of perceived neighborhoods and activity spaces, I first explore people’s place experiences and discuss approximations that emerge in the interpretation of place effects when places are operationalized as uniform areas that neglect people’s socially differentiated experiences of cities and urban resources. Focusing on the daycourse of places, I then underline how places may change hourly, especially with regard to the social composition of the population and the density of services available. This allows me to explicitly incorporate a temporal dimension to places and their effects. This double focus on the daily dynamics of people and places is at the heart of my research about place effects and social inequalities that may arise from them. Through quantitative work carried out in the cities of Paris and Montreal, I aim to highlight how research on social inequalities – just as area-based interventions that are developed to reduce them - would benefit from considering the daycourse of place effects.
