My name is François Huguet and I do like the easy-to-handle webpages.
Thanks for thinking I'm interesting enough to check up on. If you've come this far, I dare you to continue reading this page written in the first person.
When the time comes to navigate all day long on over-designed website, you should admit that you're actually reading black-and-white screen writings (some will call this frugal web). I'm sure you're impressed (did I tell you that this 3,76 Ko page intends to reduce its contribution to digital industry ecological footprint ? #LowTech #HighFutures)...
Look at you : you're smiling front of a naked website. You thought you needed media queries to be responsive, but no. Responsive means that it responds to whatever screensize it's viewed on. This site doesn't care if you're on an iMac or a Tamagotchi. This page is lightweight and loads fast, it fits on all your screens and looks the same in all your browsers.
I received my Ph.D. in Media Studies from Telecom Paris in 2016 and if you want to know more about that point you can click on that blue underlined text. Now, I'm a research fellow there. I'm primarily sociologist consultant in digital inclusion/transition/literacy.
I've worked for over eight years now on several research contract as a consultant, research engineer, sociologist, appraiser, etc. The latest project which I have been working on concerns the gender digital divide in French working-class neighborhoods. It aims to build solutions to bridge this gap (a research-project conducted with Marine Royer and La Bobine). Before that, I worked on an evaluation of the French home cancer cure in France which aimed to establish and modeling reproducible solutions in other chronical diseases and on a project about the dignity and autonomy of older people in the healthcare setting.
I am now working as a forerunner of a pre-figuration of a digital inclusion house (Family Allowances Fund - CAF Caisse d'Allocations Familiales). I'm also part of a social-design project aimed at draw the residential home of tomorrow with the gerontology pole of the Nîmes's University Hospital (CHU de Nîmes) and here again, my partners in crime are Marine Royer and La Bobine. I also work for la région Occitanie, l'office, la Mednum (la coopérative des acteurs de la médiation numérique), la mission Société Numérique, le Centre de Ressources Illettrisme et Apprentissage de la langue française du Gard, the public innovation chair ENA/ENSCI, le Lab-O (laboratoire d'innovations des services de l'État en Occitanie), la Caisse nationale de solidarité pour l'autonomie, le CNFPT, l'INSET de Montpellier, Le Conseil Départemental de Seine-Saint-Denis, etc.
I have a LinkedIn profile which you can see by clicking on this other blue underlined text. I also have a Twitter account, a Medium profile and a webpage on HAL .
I teach at Université de Nîmes (Master Design Innovation Société) and I've taught at Telecom ParisTech, the Institut Catholique de Paris, at SciencesPo, at the Université Lumière Lyon 2, at the Beirut French Institute, at SciencesPo Aix, at the American University of Paris and at the École de Condé (Web technologies, Cultural studies, sociological methods, analyse de controverses, etc.). I've studied and worked in France, Egypt, Lebanon and in the United States of America (#Yessir...).
I'm a member of the Observatoire des Mondes Numériques en Sciences Humaines (OMNSH) and of Démocratie Ouverte, an independant citizen collective for democratic transition.
I'm the lead TEDxBoulevardGambetta organizer/curator.
I used to be an editor for a magazine named Kiblind and a contributor for others online journals like Mashallah News, Socialter, Rue89 Culture, Urbanités, Urbain, trop urbain, Gaité Live, etc. I'm kinda done with this press game but I often review papers for revue POLI.
I do like the Arts Worlds and this idea proposed by Howard Becker which says that without each of the individuals who produce materials necessary to construct art, it becomes difficult if not impossible to create art. This concept of art as a product of collective action. I'm the president of an independent music label that promotes contemporary artistic creation in occitan, or linked to the occitan territory.
Usually, I read. Sometimes, I write. Often, I drink coffee. I might be found in a cafe drinking coffee and reading, or at home drinking coffee and writing. Or just drinking coffee.
