Les chercheurs et leurs pratiques : discours, savoirs, pouvoirs

Journée(s) d'étude - Lundi 11 juin 2018 - 09:00Researchers and their practices: discourses, knowledge, power3rd Workshop organized by Institut Marcel Mauss (IMM), Centre d’Étude des Mouvements Sociaux (CEMS), Groupe Sciences et Technologies (GST) and the ERC DISCONEX team. Organisateurs :Johannes Angermuller (University of Warwick - CEMS/EHESS)Françoise Dufour (CEMS/EHESS)Marco Antonio Almeida Ruiz (PPGL/UFSCar, EHESS)Eduardo Chávez Herrera (University of Warwick)Johannes Beetz (University of Warwick) Ces journées se proposent d’aborder la recherche scientifique comme une pratique sociale et discursive des chercheurs. Nous y explorerons des terrains et objets d’étude originaux, offrant des prismes d’analyse heuristique aussi bien dans des domaines aujourd’hui largement imprégnés par les pratiques des chercheurs que dans des champs investis plus récemment (activités gouvernementales, associatives, militantes, médiatiques). Nous nous demanderons en particulier comment envisager la pluralité des situations dans lesquelles les chercheurs se trouvent engagés, dans le contexte de la mondialisation du marché de l’enseignement supérieur et de la recherche : entre positionnements disciplinaires, institutionnels, réputationnels, sociétaux… quels types de continuités est-il possible de tracer ? Programme :Lundi 11 juin 2018/Monday, 11th of June 2018♦ 9:00 – Accueil des participants/reception and openingMATIN/MORNINGAcademic positioning and identity construction Salle/room 7 - Discutant/discussant: Luca GRECO (Université Paris 3-Sorbonne nouvelle)♦ 9:30 – 10:15 Johannes ANGERMULLER (University of Warwick/EHESS): Ouverture/opening: The discursive making of professors: research as a social positioning practice♦ 10:15 – 11:00 Françoise DUFOUR (EHESS), Aurore ZELAZNY, Alexandra ZIEROLD (University of Warwick): Tracing academic career paths: Comparisons across three European countries (France, Germany, UK)♦ 11:00 – 11:30 Pause café salle 11/room 11♦ 11:30 – 11:50 Eduardo CHÁVEZ HERRERA (University of Warwick): Semiotics narrated?

Métro: Vavin ou Notre-Dame-des-Champs Cette journée d'étude, qui se déroulera en anglais, a pour vocation de faire dialoguer la notion d’informalisation que le sociologue néerlandais Cas Wouters a développée dans le sillage de l'œuvre de Norbert Elias avec les travaux menés au LIER au sujet de la production sociale de réflexivité. Sur le plan méthodologique, l'enjeu est de confronter le type particulier de "sociologie pragmatique" (ou "sociologie des épreuves") pratiquée au LIER avec la démarche de chercheurs liés à "l’école d’Amsterdam", école qui, née au cours des années durant lesquelles Norbert Elias a travaillé à l’Université de cette ville, privilégie la sociologie "figurationnelle". Cas Wouters et ses collègues Don Weenink, Jan Willem Duyvendak et Rineke van Daalen présenteront des communications qui seront discutées par des membres du LIER.***Programme♦ 9h-9h30 Coffee and tea♦ 9h30-10h00Dominique Linhardt, Mischa Dekker and Gautier Mariage: Opening and LIER hypothesesCas Wouters: Opening words♦ 10h15-11h30Don Weenink: “Violent Crime and Informalization”Discutants : Théo Leschevin and Cédric Moreau de Bellaing♦ 11h45- 13h00Jan Willem Duyvendak: “The Informalization of the Nation.

Il s’agit alors de réunir les chercheurs qui, à partir du judaïsme, christianisme ou islam ou même de l’histoire intellectuelle de l’Antiquité tardive, s’efforcent d’examiner et de penser les implications politiques du religieux là où celui-ci se soutient de l’unicité absolue du Dieu-Un et des modalités sous lesquelles cette unicité est conçue. Ce colloque s’inscrit dans le projet l’ANR, « Religions monothéistes et mouvements sociaux d’émancipation : continuités et transformations dans la constitution des sujets critiques (ReMouS) », conçu sous forme d’un partenariat entre l’EHESS (LIER/IMM-CRH) et l’Université Paris Diderot (IHSS/CRPMS).PROGRAMME Vendredi 16 mars9h30-10h15Fethi Benslama : OuvertureBruno Karsenti : Introduction-Présentation du projet ReMous10h15-12h10h15-11h : Pierre Manent, « La théologie politique et ses légendes : Carl Schmitt et Erik Peterson »11h-11h45 : Bernard Bourdin, « Le monothéisme chrétien : une théologie politique paradoxale »11h45-12h : Questions12h- 12h15: Pause12h15-13h : Nadia Tazi, « Écueils et embarras de la virilité en islam »13h-14h30 : Déjeuner14h30-16h15 :14h30-15h15: Pierre Caye, « Hénologie et polythéisme dans le néoplatonisme : pour une approche critique du théologico-politique »15h15-16h : Isabelle Kalinowski, « Dieu et son lieu : Max Weber et le monothéisme »16h-16h15: Questions16h15-16h30: Pause16h30-18h: Table ronde « politique et idéalisation » Fethi Benslama Hamit Bozarslan Danny Trom          Samedi 17 mars10-11h30 :10h-10h45 : Polymnia Athanassiadi, « La cité des dieux : héritages et survies »10h45-11h30 : Jacqueline Chabbi, « Ressemblance et illusion : le monothéisme du Coran d'un point de vue historique »11h30-11h45 : Questions11h45-12 h : Pause12h-12h45 : Anoush Ganjipour , « Messianisme et ambivalence théologico-politique de l’islam »12h45-13h : Questions13h-14h30 : déjeuner14h30-16h15 :14h30-15h15 : Gildas Salmon, « Monothéisme et empire colonial: les politiques de la traduction dans l'Inde britannique, fin XVIIIe-début XIXe siècle »15h15-16h : Julia Christ, « Monothéisme et socialisme »16h-16h15 : Questions16h15-18h :16h15-17h : Frédéric Brahami, « Le Moïse positiviste »17h-17h45 : Jean-Luc Nancy, « Quel est le sujet de la révélation ? »17h45-18h30 : Guy Stroumsa, « La religion ouverte et ses ennemis »18h30-19h : Questions et clôture

Penser le soin à travers ses tensions

Colloque - Vendredi 09 mars 2018 - 09:00Le soin est aujourd’hui un thème fédérateur de divers enjeux (médical, environnemental, parental, amical, politique, climatique) qui ont pour point commun de chercher à prendre en charge la fragilité de la vie. Ainsi que l’ont montré les éthiques du care, le soin s’agence idéalement selon trois dimensions : des gestes techniques, une attention subjective et des normes de justice économique et sociale. Au cours de cette journée, plutôt que de partir du présupposé d’un agencement harmonieux, nous chercherons au contraire à explorer sa dissociation en documentant les tensions, les contradictions et les fractures que nous pouvons saisir dans les pratiques de soin. Nous décrirons ces tensions en considérant l’activité de soin dans la pluralité de ses enjeux : à partir de son ancrage médical (soins palliatifs, soin de maladies incurables, médecine personnalisée) mais aussi à partir de problèmes nouveaux (l’euthanasie, le suicide assisté, l’hybridation homme-animal) et de situations imprévisibles (une catastrophe, la crise des migrants, le devenir des déchets nucléaires). Il s’agira alors d’analyser les tensions que nous observons dans ces pratiques, toujours décrites dans des situations ethnographiques concrètes et précises, pour explorer et penser l’idée même de soin dans toute sa complexité et dans toute sa profondeur.

Call for abstract : Financialization and development policies : Critical perspectives on new financial circuits for international development projects

Appel recherche - Mardi 06 mars 2018 - 17:00Call for abstract for an academic conference on financialization and international development in Hamburg, Germany.Financialization and development policies : Critical perspectives on new financial circuits for international development projects.A conference hosted by the Centre for Globalisation and Governance, Universität Hamburg, Germany. Date: 12-14 September 2018Conveners: Eve Chiapello (EHESS Paris) and Anita Engels (Universität Hamburg)Submission deadline for paper proposals: 6 March 2018. Submission address: devfinconf@ehess.fr, 500 to 800 words plus references.In this conference we look at the ways in which private finance actors or practices are enrolled and associated to the conception and implementation of policies for international development. In parallel to the implementation of policies oriented towards “development goals”, the development landscape has seen over the last decades a transformation in partaking actors that now encompass charitable foundations, multi-national corporations, and financial intermediaries, in addition to multilateral or bilateral public development banks and aid agencies. “Financing development“, in other words finding additional monetary resources, has now become an issue at the top of the agenda of multilateral development actors. Increasingly, these strive to commit private actors and to “lever in“ private money. Against the backdrop of increasing plurality of relations, tools, actors, and practices in international development, this conference focuses on the particular issue of financial circuits and their relation to development projects. These circuits include for example: the development of private equity financing by development banks and more generally the use of “alternative financial instruments” (in the words of the World Bank); the promotion of social businesses or social enterprises promising “sustainable” operation without “grant dependence” as targets for “impact investors”; the mobilization of microcredit, micro-insurance, or mobile payment devices into the structuring of new deals, the increased role of private foundations acting as “catalytic actors” (in the words of OECD); or the implication of private financial actors such as international banks, insurance companies or fintech companies into the design of development policies.This conference aims at assembling sociological, socio-historical and institutional analyses of these changes in the financing circuits and methods of international development aid over the last decades. We are particularly interested in empirical analyses of the changing role of financial actors, tools, innovations and practices in international development. We are keen to hear of analyses that transcend the level of discourse and publicly communicated intentions and focus on in-depth case studies of finance in action. These may focus on the description, genealogy, consequences, work or limits of financialization in development. We are equally interested in analyses that “follow the money” of given projects through different stages and levels, paying attention to the kind of money circulating (origins, conditionality,..), as well as more horizontal, comparative, or longitudinal studies of finance in international development. This does not mean that we are only interested in the “successful” creation of such circuits – to the contrary, we also embrace studies that investigate failures of, in, and around such financial circuits. We are equally interested in analyses focusing on traditional Western actors such as the Bretton Woods institutions, as well as emerging and non-Western actors such as such as the China Development Bank, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, but also local actors in the Global South, and “South-South” relations.We welcome papers from a variety of disciplines such as, for example, sociology, political science, critical geography, history, anthropology, political economy, organization theory, social movement theory, or science and technology studies.The conference aims to address six thematic clusters that are presented below, together with non-exhaustive lists of examples.1.    Private actors and development finance circuits: How are private actors such as financial investors, fintech companies, insurances, “catalytic” foundations, multi-national corporations, law and consulting firms, and NGOs affecting the emergence and implementation of new financial circuits in development? What are their previous trajectories, motivations, initiatives, and strategies? What are the (political, institutional, economical, financial) drivers that contribute to the creation of these new circuits? How are these financial circuits internally contested, for example between lenders and equity investors? What kinds of new relations emerge and in which contexts? How is profitability and return constructed within development finance?2.    State, policy, and finance: How are states and policymakers shaped or affected by and constitutive of financial circuits in international development? How does austerity politics, implemented in OECD countries since the 2008 crisis, relate to development financial circuits? How do social transfer policies contribute to reshaping development financial circuits? What is the influence of recent national political transformations such as the “alternative right” on these issues? What is the role of state “failures” and “failed states”? How are these new financial flows related to evidence-based policy? How are political relations between states, and geopolitics more broadly, translated into these financial configurations?3.    Public finance. How are organizational interests of public financial intermediaries (such as public development banks, the European Investment Bank and -Fund, or the World Bank) affecting the growth and trajectories of development financial circuits? How are transformations of public management and public finance devices related to development financial circuits? What is the role played by finance and treasury ministries? Has there been a qualitative or quantitative shift in public spending in relation to financial actors (such as direct subsidies, tax incentives, guarantees, “blended” and “anchor” investments, risk transfers)? Do the politics of “debt” have changed through these arrangements?4.    Tools, devices and technologies. What are the trajectories and the genealogy of devices used in the establishment in development finance circuits? How do these devices become policy instruments? How are specific technologies, such as mobile phones, used as tools for the development of new financial services in the Global South? What are the respective roles of financial and insurance valuation techniques, of science? How does financial and scientific expertise combine in these devices? How do they connect different conceptions of risk? What are their political economic consequences, and how do they distribute rights and duties, organize the circulation of money between parties, and construct accountability?5.    Contests and barriers. Are there structural boundaries to the rise of finance in international development? How are critical actors reacting to the deployment of these financial instruments? What is the influence of geopolitical contests on development financial circuits? How are postcolonial economic relations translated into new financial practices? Do non-western capitalist frames, such as Islamic finance, have an effect on these new circuits?6.    Corruption, illegal, and offshore finance. What is the role of corruption, tax avoidance, and non-transparent market places for the emergence of development financial circuits? How is this “dark” side of finance sustaining or prohibiting development cash-flows? How do these actors change the financing and the practices of development?Contributors are invited to submit an initial proposal of up to 800 words (plus references). These proposals should be sent by email to devfinconf@ehess.fr by March 6th 2018. When submitting your paper, please indicate clearly to which of the six thematic clusters you are aiming to contribute. Moreover, your proposal must include a title, research question, and a brief indication of your data and methodology. Authors will be notified by April 10th 2018 the latest whether or not their proposal has been accepted. Accepted authors are required to submit a full paper (maximum 12,000 words) by August 20th 2018. A limited number of grants will be available to cover travel and residence costs (further details after acceptance). The organizing committee furthermore comprises Sara Aguiton (CNRS France), Stefan Aykut (Hamburg University), Philipp Golka (Hamburg University), Eduardo Gresse (Hamburg University), Isabelle Guerin (IRD, France), Océane Ronal (EHESS France)

Camilo León-Quijano a remporté la quatrième édition du prix du diaporama sonore

Prix et distinctions -Doctorant en sociologie à l’EHESS, Camilo León-Quijano a remporté le prix du diaporama sonore 2017 avec son travail consacré à des adolescentes joueuses de rugby à Sarcelles. Le prix est décerné par Diapéro, Libération et Fisheye Magazine. Le diaporama sonore est consultable ici.Présentation du projet photographique« Engagement visuel : l’usage de l’image lors du projet photographique Rugbywomen : Tackling Stereotypes »Dans le cadre d’une enquête sociologique à Sarcelles, Camilo León-Quijano a démarré un projet photographique avec un groupe de 20 rugbywomen du collège Chantereine. Pendant un an, Il les a suivies lors des tournois, des entrainements et dans leur vie quotidienne. En tant que photographe, il a voulu non seulement faire une enquête sociologique sur leur quotidien mais également construire avec elles un récit. Pour ce faire, ils ont ensemble conçu une expo-photo « éphémère » qui présentait dans un lieu public les photographies prises lors du travail de terrain. Ainsi, 180 mètres linéaires de photographies ont été installés sur les murs du collège. 22 photographies de 2,60x3,20m ont été affichées et un vernissage a été organisé. A cette occasion des parents, des ami-e-s et des habitant-e-s de cette ville située au nord de Paris ont assisté à l’expo-photo à l’air libre. Celle-ci a été accompagnée d’une projection multimédia dans laquelle sons ambiance, interviews et images ont été diffusés.Camilo León-Quijano a également été lauréat du prix "circuits et passages" remis à l'occasion du concours photos organisé par l'EHESS et la FMSH en octobre 2017, avec la même série photographique « Les rugbywomen: plaquer les stéréotypes ».This research was supported by the Society for Visual Anthropology/Robert Lemelson Foundation Fellowship, made possible by a generous donation from The Robert Lemelson Foundation.
