Confinement viewed through the prism of the social sciences: contrasting facilities, confronting approaches

L’enfermement au prisme des sciences sociales : rapprocher les lieux, confronter les approches

*  *  *

Published on Thursday, July 18, 2013 by Luigia Parlati

Summary

Ce colloque international et pluridisciplinaire interroge les transformations des formes contemporaines de gouvernement des populations par l’enfermement. Saisies dans une variété d’espaces et d’institutions, ces dynamiques donnent autant à voir l’existence de processus transversaux aux différents lieux, que le maintien de leurs particularités et d’héritages propres à chacun d’entre eux. Dans une perspective historique ou contemporaine, il s’agit donc d’analyser ce que le rapprochement des travaux sur l’enfermement produit en termes de compréhension : compréhension du continuum carcéral à travers la vie sociale ; des liens entre espace et pouvoir ; de la pluralité des acteurs au sein des institutions et de la mise en tension de ces institutions ; des inégalités et des assignations identitaires ; encore de l'articulation entre enfermement et mobilité. Le colloque est organisé dans le cadre du programme « TerrFerme – Les dispositifs de l’enfermement. Approche territoriale du contrôle politique et social contemporain ».
