Summary

This PhD seminar wishes to bring into being a collective research aiming at producing transdisciplinar knowledges as we set an environment for social scientist to share their critical tools and methods. The goal of this seminar is to tackle the normativity of the global governance models emerging from neoliberal politics and policies and the manner it operates at different scales. We aim at bringing to the concept of "neoliberalism" fresh addendum from empirical datas, drawn from researchs currently being made among PhD from PSL institutions.

PSL, EHESS, PhD Seminar

Argument

Has (neo)liberalism done its course? a multifaceted question to be understood under several aspects, that the collective research seminar (Un)ruling others and the self aims at unfolding. It offers an environment for social scientists to share critical tools and methodologies among disciplines, as they stimulate each other through their respective and common traditions. The goal of this seminar, through critical analysis of empirical data, is to target, connect and compare the normativity of the global governance models emerging from neoliberal politics and policies and the manner it operates at different scales.

This seminar focuses on the emergence of collectives based on political, social and economic alternatives observable worldwide. We will be interested in the analysis of social scientists focusing their research on the mechanisms of integration and of institutionalisation of these phenomena, from which we shall try to define their features. Can we identify processes of reproduction of the logics of neoliberal governance through these organisations and movements? What are the methods of resistance, accompaniment or action whose irruption is correlative with attempts in renewing the practices of the art of governing?

This open call call for papers is first proposed to PhD students working on these questions, whatever the discipline they come from. During each bi-monthly session, this seminar sets a debate between a PhD student and a social science researcher from PSL universities. A preliminary reading of a book or a scientific article shall help us for putting into perspective each speaker’s investigations and guiding the conversation. This large corpus of data will give rise to a round table discussion at the end of each session.
