Re-inventing Research Events: Towards a Hybridization of Labs and Conferences?

Re-inventing Research Events: Towards a Hybridization of Labs and Conferences?

Since the beginning of RGCS, this is strong obsession: how to re-invent academia? How to co-produce new academic events? More in touch with society? Contributive to sustainable common worlds? Most academic events follow a dichotomic logic (see figure 1 below).

Figure 1: Two main logics behind research events today?

On the one hand, some research entities and events embody continuities and activities. Laboratories, research groups, internal seminars, are space-time where and when research goes on. The content of research is produced from there, continuously, actively, all year long. Stable and co-present communities, grounded into a specific territory (most of the time a city) are here and now. Of course, logics of distributed projects (global projects) extend in space and time the production and assemblage of knowledge, but the process remain highly continuous. Interestingly, some researchers stress that true encounters, serendipity, openness of labs and their events would be a powerful

Call for Special Issue : Workplace transformation in the post-Covid-19 society

Call for Special Issue : Workplace transformation in the post-Covid-19 society

Special issue guest Editor: Dr. Marko Orel, University of Economics

The Journal of Corporate Real Estate (JCRE) is pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue devoted to papers on the aftermath of COVID- 19 pandemic and workplace-related challenges that have been caused by the recent lockdown. With enforced social and physical distancing, many offices have taken the toll and will need to adapt to meet future expectations and demands of their occupants. Several branches of the workplace industry are affected and it seems that future office trends may take a new and unpredicted turn.

The main aim of this special issue is to cover a number of aspects based on the effect on occupiers themselves (e.g., workplace management, arrangements within existing workplaces and design of new workspaces, etc.), the effect of occupiers’ COVID-19 workplace decisions on the wider commercial real estate markets, the consequences for home

Walking together in Brooklyn: Alterity, gentrification and data privacy

Contributors (in alphabetical order): Anonymous 1;, Fayard, A-L.; Stefan; M; Statler, M; de Vaujany, FX.

On October, 25th 2019, we had the opportunity of a first Open Walked Event-Based Experimentation (OWEE) in the US. The idea of an OWEE is very simple: gathering a group of people who, for most of them, have never met, and co-producing a collective walk along with some analysis about it. An OWEE has thus no particular ‘objective’. It is a drift (“derive”) in a public space, sometimes intertwined with visits of third-spaces or collaborative spaces which are a way to explore further or differently the area around.

The topic of this collaborative learning expedition was Brooklyn, with the general and vague idea to explore its invisible frontiers and atmospheres, and grasp some aspects of the gentrification process here.

Carnet de voyage : regards croisés sur les makers et l’entrepreneuriat au Sénégal

Carnet de voyage : regards croisés sur les makers et l’entrepreneuriat au Sénégal

By Julie Fabbri, EM Lyon; Amadou Lô, Toulouse Business School ; Christian Gnekpe, Toulouse Business School ; Pauline Fatien Diochon, SKEMA Business School et Thibault Daudigeos, Grenoble École de Management (GEM)

Dans le cadre de la 28ᵉ conférence annuelle organisée par l’association internationale de management stratégique francophone (#AIMS2019) à Dakar (Sénégal) du 11 au 14 juin 2019, cinq enseignants-chercheurs résidant en France croisent leurs ressentis. L’organisation de cette édition en Afrique est l’occasion de poser la question de la signification et de l’adaptation de l’entrepreneuriat, et plus largement du management africain/en Afrique. Retours sur trois journées riches en réflexions et émotions au pays de l’hospitalité et de la débrouille.

Walking from Montmartre to Montreuil

Walking from Montmartre to Montreuil

By Tadashi Uda (Hokkaido University)

The view from Sacré-Coeur was great. As the terrain in the center of Paris is relatively flat, I could look over the city from there for the first time after coming to Paris.

We found a map at the side of the stairs in front of Basilique. The cityscape of Paris seen from the Sacré-Coeur in 1939 was drawn. I was surprised that there was no big difference between the current landscape and the picture drawn. I wonder if there is a “mega” city that has not changed the figure for 80 years in Japan (Even in Kyoto, the city/landscape has changed a lot except historical sites and a part of areas). The change of the cityscape in Tokyo is tremendous.

Things around us in Paris and Tokyo, for example are almost same. However, I came up with the question that how the difference in

RGCS Paper Factory #1

RGCS Paper Factory #1

Program – OWEE paper workshop  

“RGCS Paper Factory #1”

3-5 June 2019, Dauphine University (Paris)

 

Coordinators : Olivier Irrmann & François-Xavier de Vaujany

Registration: https://www.eventbrite.fr/e/billets-workshop-owee-61782133023

Location: Université Paris Dauphine - Place du Maréchal de Lattre de Tassigny, 75016 Paris – Meeting at the entrance hall of the university main building.

 

Once upon a Walk

In 2016, we began a collective adventure about a collaborative learning expedition we called OWEE (for "Open Walked Event-Based Experimentations"). Since then, we organized 23 OWEEs, wrote a White Paper and started a research project focused on OWEE. This has already produced paper conferences (at LAEMOS, EGOS, AOM, OAP...) and we are now shifting to the stage of writing collaboratively academic articles about these experimentations.

 

The objectives of the workshop

On June 3-5 2019 (Monday to Wednesday) we will organize at Dauphine a collaborative writing workshop about the potential of OWEE learning

« Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 », l’évènement d’une nouvelle ère!

« Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 », l’évènement d’une nouvelle ère!

L’apprentissage est un débat récurrent au sein de la société, comme en témoignent le nombre d’écoles alternatives, de rapports d’échecs scolaires[1]et de réformes de l’éducation nationale par chaque nouveau ministre[2]. C’est aussi un thème qui émerge des pratiques et des espaces de coworking[3]. En effet, le coworking est une question de communauté (co) et de travail (working) et cela inclut de l’apprentissage social. Et quand une communauté de travail décide d’apprendre ensemble sur le thème « Apprendre au bout de ma rue… en 2019 ! », on en tire un événement génial !!

Collaborative Ethnography: Welcoming the Passenger

Collaborative Ethnography: Welcoming the Passenger

By François-Xavier de Vaujany, PSL, Université Paris-Dauphine

Ethnography, auto-ethnography and collaborative ethnography are more and more parts of my research and teaching practices. Open Walked Event-Based Experimentations (OWEE), these collaborative learning expeditions experimented since 2016, have been an opportunity for me to explore further the collaborative side of ethnography with co-produced articles, shared log books and collaborative use of social media.

By means of a movie I use for some of my teachings, the Passenger  directed in 1975 by Michelangelo Antonioni, I would like to come back here to three key issues about collaborative ethnography: “reversibility” of the conversation, “silence” and “depth” (more than “perspective”). Those are topics which particularly resonate with the work of the philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty and the writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Collaborative ethnography is not about ‘applying’ a research protocol. Sometimes, the use of logbooks in the context of ethnography
