Critique sociale et mobilisation : dialogue entre sociologues français et taiwanais

Social Critique and Mobilization: A Dialogue between French and Taiwanese Sociologists

*  *  *

Publié le mercredi 17 novembre 2010 par Delphine Cavallo

Résumé

This conference will try to uncover the assumptions about social critique and mobilization and how sociology makes these things social. To say it more concretely, we will try to share our different fieldwork approach and theoretical understanding of widely used concepts such as, for example, civil society, labor movements, environmental protest… We will try to analyze the interactions between social protest and the media, the state, political parties, industries, etc.

Annonce

The French speakers of this conference are members, or associate members, of the Groupe de sociologie politique et moral (GSPM). Compare to Bourdieu, Touraine and Latour who have been introduced in Taiwan, the works of Boltanski and Thévenot, the “founding fathers” of GSPM are rather unknown in Taiwan. In a conference at the Institute of Sociology (IOS, Academia Sinica), two years ago, Pierre-Paul Zalio, professor of sociology at the Ecole Normale Superieure, despite his belonging to a different intellectual tradition, introduced Boltanski and Thévenot as one of the most fascinating and groundbreaking authors of today’s French sociology. So CEFC Taipei proposed to IOS to invite some representatives of GSPM for a dialogue with Taiwanese sociologists on this “hot issue”.

Organizers: Institute of Sociology (IOS), Academia Sinica and French Center for Research on Contemporary China (CEFC), Taipei Office
