A Sociocultural Approach to Mobile Families: A Case Study

Zittoun, Tania ; Levitan, Déborah ; Cangià, Flavia

In: Peace and Conflict: Journal of Peace Psychology, 2019, vol. 24, no. 4, p. 424-432

This paper proposes a sociocultural perspective of mobility, of which migration is only one case, with a focus on mobile families. Consistent with mobility studies, sociocultural psychology of the lifecourse proposes to study both the sociocultural conditions of mobility, and the perspective of mobile people. In addition, in this article, we consider interrelated lives in mobility. We discuss the...

A sociocultural psychology of repeated mobility: dialogical challenges = Una psicología sociocultural de la movilidad repetida: desafíos dialógicos

Zittoun, Tania ; Levitan, Déborah

In: Studies in Psychology / Estudios de Psicología, 2019, vol. 40, no. 1, p. 79-106

In this paper, we propose a sociocultural psychology of the lifecourse to examine the extreme case of families living in repeated international mobility. In this case, mobility is motivated by work, which leads to repeated relocation of housing and occupational arrangements across countries. Based on fieldwork, we highlight three challenges of repeated mobility and discuss their implications...

Le tourisme face aux changements climatiques : comment articuler une démarche de durabilité ? : Le cas des Alpes Vaudoises et de la stratégie « Alpes Vaudoises 2020 »

Bruni, Morgane Cécile ; Rebetez, Martine (Dir.)

Mémoire de master : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

La démarche Alpes Vaudoises 2020 vise à solutionner l’apparition pour le tourisme « d’enjeux spécifiques » liés au réchauffement climatique. Les stations de ski de moyenne altitude sont particulièrement concernées par la réduction de l’enneigement. Or, la transition vers un tourisme moins dépendant de la neige est au centre de politiques publiques fédérales et...

Mobilité étudiante : Les motivations et stratégies des étudiant.es internationaux.ales à l’Université de Neuchâtel

Leo, Christelle ; Piguet, Etienne (Dir.) ; Riaño, Yvonne (Codir.)

Mémoire de master : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

La mobilité étudiante est un phénomène en pleine expansion. Selon les chiffres de l’OCDE, le nombre d’étudiants inscrits dans une université en dehors de leurs pays de citoyenneté serait passée de 0.8 millions en 1975 à plus de 4.1 millions en 2010. (OCDE, 2012). Si de nombreuses études ont été faites sur le thème de la migration étudiante, peu sont celles qui se focalisent...

Passing-by 'Ca va?' checks in clinic corridors

González-Martínez, Esther ; Bangerter, Adrian ; Lê Van, Kim

In: Semiotica, 2017, vol. 215, p. 1-42

We have conducted a video-based field study on work interactions between staff members in the corridors of a hospital outpatient clinic in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. In this paper, we examine a specific mobile interactional configuration: passing-by interactions in which staff members get involved as they walk following close and parallel trajectories going in opposite...

Editorial : When "expatriation" is a matter of family. Opportunities, barriers and intimacies in international mobility

Cangia, Flavia ; Zittoun, Tania

In: Migration Letters, 2018, vol. 15, no. 1, p. 1-16

This special issue aims at understanding “expatriate” mobility with a special focus on the role of family and intimacy, and brings together different case-studies, built through different theoretical perspectives. These allow approaching “expatriate” mobile families along two main lines: as part of the making of life trajectories, and as these are shaped by, and are shaping, professional...

La nouvelle ville traditionnelle : géographies d'un modèle urbain mobile

Dupuis, Blaise ; Söderström, Ola (Dir.) ; Chabard, Pierre (Codir.) ; Ghorra-Gobin, Cynthia (Codir.) ; Lévy, Jacques (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

This doctoral thesis in human geography analyses how urban models shape, and are shaped by, the increased circulation of architectural and urban knowledge. Through the study of architectural practices and projects, the aim is to better understand the translation modalities of a model - in this case the neo-traditional model - and their effects on urban forms and governance. The neo-traditional...
