Under the direction of Prof. Vincent Kaufmann, Laboratory of Urban Sociology (LaSUR) comprises of around fifteen researchers and PhD students united towards the comprehension of urban experiences within a social science perspective.

 

Situated within the EPFL and the ENAC Faculty (Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering), the LaSUR researches the social conditions that produce and appropriate cities or territories, collaborating intensively with its partners in engineering and architecture.

 

The LaSUR confronts urban phenomena through the mobility capacities of its actors. In this perspective, the principal research themes are daily mobility, residential history, the dynamics of suburbanization and gentrification, public space, and network management.

New book: High Mobility in Europe

Source: Palgrave MacmillanTravelling intensively to and for work helps – but also challenges – people to find ways of balancing work and personal life. Drawing on an extensive European longitudinal study, High Mobility in Europe explores the diversity and ambivalence of mobility situations. Using both quantitative and qualitative approaches, this book outlines patterns of high mobility over the life course and analyses the intersecting implications for family and career development, place attachment and social inequality. The contributors to this volume provide an important and timely contribution to the debate about the growing importance of mobility in contemporary societies.

La venue de l'été annonce le début de la saison des festivals. Mais certains regrettent que ces manifestations aient perdu leur caractère festif et qu'à trop vouloir en assurer le bon déroulement, les autorités aient fini par dénaturer ces lieux de liesse, les étouffant dans un carcan administratif. L’interview de Luca Pattaroni, maître d'enseignement et de recherche au Laboratoire de Sociologie Urbaine de l'EPFL.
