Summary

This issue seeks to understand how the different humanities and social sciences approach the question of "plurality” in societies. Using what material, what types of source? With what concepts, paradigms, tools and methods of analysis? Confronting the contributions that the disciplines represented in this issue make will make it possible to identify the bridges that might be established between the different fields of research, and how these may mutually enrich one another.

Argument

Born out of the PRES Sorbonne-Paris-Cité (Sorbonne-Paris-Cité Centre for Research and Higher Education) interdisciplinary programme, and after a first issue devoted to the humanities and social sciences put to the test of the event, the Sociétés plurielles journal wishes to publish a second issue that is founding in its epistemological scope. Here, “plural” is understood in its broad sense, as a discontinuity that can be observed in a given social time-space. Discontinuities may be the result of human mobility, or intrinsic to society; they may be inscribed in synchrony, or present an evolutive character; they may be expressed in the register of symbolic forms (religion, language, art, etc.), or in the register of the temporal (the multiple trajectories of a same historical phenomenon); finally, discontinuities take on an axiological dimension when they gain adhesion or become an objective to be obtained (in such cases, pluralism is referred to as a democratic value), or, on the contrary, when the discontinuous and diversity trigger rejection and marginalization. To not exhaust the scope of the notion of “plural”, this definition embraces as many possible questions and angles that the Sociétés plurielles programme intends to address. 

In this framework, this issue seeks to understand how the different humanities and social sciences approach the question of "plurality” in societies. Using what material, what types of source? With what concepts, paradigms, tools and methods of analysis? Confronting the contributions that the disciplines represented in this issue make will make it possible to identify the bridges that might be established between the different fields of research, and how these may mutually enrich one another.
