Séminaire « Space, Health, Cognition » – 30 juin 2016
Ce séminaire porté par l’axe 1 se déroulera au 2ème étage de la MSHS, en salle 227/229.
Health geographics is a relatively new area of that discipline. It concerns the way (geographic) space interacts with individuals, their bodies, to produce effects on their health. These effects are usually studied from a negative standpoint. Space can interact via distance (ruggedness, obstacle) for example by making access to healthcare more difficult, or via neighborhood (contamination in the case of viruses, or proximity with
highways, an airport or polluting industries). This discussion is essentially about the latter aspect, through the presentation of a work being currently carried out on the spatialization of odors of industrial origin.
