Abstract

This book provides a detailed historical analysis of the Swiss Parliament. It sheds light on how the profiles of parliamentarians have evolved over a century, and recounts the various legislative reforms affecting their status. The author analyses the impact of these reforms on the collective biography of the members of Parliament. The rich data allow for an empirically grounded reflection on how well the parliamentary composition represents the population, for instance in terms of their gender or level of education, and an understanding of the processes of democratization and professionalization of the institution. This research has received a prize from the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Lausanne and an incentive award from the Swiss Society for Parliamentary Questions. Andrea Pilotti has a PhD in Political Sciences from the University of Lausanne. He is Research Manager at the Research Observatory for Regional Politics and member of the Swiss Elite Observatory at the University of Lausanne’s Faculty of Social and Political sciences.

Abstract

The study presented in this book for the first time in Switzerland offers a broad empirical and sociological perspective on local religious organizations. From this perspective, religion appears first, as already observed by Weber and Durkheim, through communities regardless of their various profiles. In Switzerland, 5,734 parishes and religious groups have been identified by a national census in 2008. The book underlines the institutional salience of historical churches (Reformed and Roman Catholic) but also the emerging religious plurality, particularly in urban areas. This study sheds a new light upon the effects of secularization (lower limbs and practice) and pluralisation (diversification of religious denominations and traditions) in the organizational field. The analysis of differences and similarities between religious traditions shows a social positioning of the local groups according to the statutes acquired in history. The classical theories − e.g. about the relationship between social status of members and membership groups, types of religious authorities or differences between Church and Sect − are revisited, clarified or reformulated based on an original and representative quantitative data of the Swiss religious field.

Abstract

Le travail social est un domaine de recherche relativement récent (années 60) qui produit des recherches fondamentales tournées vers l’application. A la Haute école de travail social de Genève, les recherches se concentrent actuellement autour de trois axes: la citoyenneté; les nouveaux modes de régulations étatiques et associatifs ainsi que les pratiques professionnelles et modes d’intervention en travail social. Après 50 ans d’existence, le Centre de recherche sociale (CERES) de la HETS-Genève interroge ses pratiques. Quels types de politiques de recherche est développée? Comment les problèmes sociaux sont-ils abordés pour en faire des problématiques de recherche? Comment les données et analyses sont-elles transmises? S’agit-il d’ailleurs d’une transmission passive ou, au contraire, de co-réflexion ou co-production de recherches, menées, non seulement avec les partenaires de terrain, mais aussi avec les étudiant-e-s suivant les enseignements?

Abstract

Ce livre porte sur les relations culturelles entre la France et la Suède de 1945 à nos jours. Il réunit les articles présentés à l’occasion de la conférence internationale, « Frankrike-Sverige – Tur och retur », qui a eu lieu à Stockholm en janvier 2014, organisée par l’Université Paris-Sorbonne et l’Université de Stockholm. Ces vingt-deux articles tracent ensemble une histoire croisée des médiations matérielles et immatérielles, dynamiques et complexes, ayant permis la construction des identités culturelles dans trois domaines principaux : les représentations et l’imaginaire ; la médiation et les vecteurs de transmission ; la traduction, la réception et la circulation des oeuvres.

Abstract

La corrida et le rodéo, les deux seuls affrontements homme-bovin mondialement connus, sont de lointains cousins dont les relations historiques et formelles interrogent les processus de transformation de la culture entre l'Europe et l'Amérique. Cette étude de géographie culturelle envisage toutes les pratiques tauromachiques, des courses de taureaux du sud-ouest européen à l'immense famille des rodéos nord et sud-américains. Les jeux, les fêtes et les spectacles sont analysés comme des marqueurs territoriaux et comme des moyens d'expression identitaire qui prennent forme et signification les uns par rapport aux autres. Il en résulte une mosaïque territoriale complexe où les relations homme-bovin véhiculent des sentiments d'appartenance dont les clivages et les solidarités s'expriment à l'échelle d'une aire culturelle transatlantique.

Abstract

Through the paths of three resorts, this book examines how the areas af-fected by tourism and mobility change, and questions the notion of territorial value. The development of territories is understood through their mobility: the mobility not only of people but also of knowledge and information, as well as markets. Today, in a "hypermobile" world, places must be connect-ed. These networks lead to a standardization of territories. However, to at-tract tourists, media attention, and investors, territories must stand out! It is this process of staging and construction of value that this book presents.

Abstract

Gambling is now a legitimate sector of the entertainment industry. In the 1990s, opposition emerged in North America but failed to build a social movement on a large scale. This book specifically examines one of these coalitions in Vancouver, Cana-da. The local anti-gambling movement is analyzed as an expression of civic and political engagement. The study focuses specifically on the process of denouncing gambling practices and their conversion into a "public issue." The author analyzes a highly relevant current social debate.
