Summary

Condition Humaine / Conditions Politiques was launched in December 2020 by a group of researchers based in France. This new journal proposes to develop and disseminate French and international research devoted to anthropological readings of politics in the contemporary world. Large-scale planetary transformations (ecological, social, digital, economic, etc.) are reconfiguring our presence in the world and consequently, the very concept of human being as an individual and collective political subject. In today’s world new forms of politics are emerging that go hand in hand with these transformations and invites to rethink the “political” object beyond its conventional boundaries.

Argument

A new journal of political anthropology

Condition Humaine / Conditions Politiques was launched in December 2020 by a group of researchers based in France. This new journal proposes to develop and disseminate French and international research devoted to anthropological readings of politics in the contemporary world.

Large-scale planetary transformations (ecological, social, digital, economic, etc.) are reconfiguring our presence in the world and consequently, the very concept of human being as an individual and collective political subject. In today’s world new forms of politics are emerging that go hand in hand with these transformations and invites to rethink the “political” object beyond its conventional boundaries. The journal aims at providing the analyses that anthropology, associated with neighbouring disciplines, can perform of these radical transformations or reformulations of politics, including new forms of protests and alternative imaginations of futures, the reconfiguration of modes of the state in the age of globalization, but also of norms and flows, turmoil, fractures,.

Condition humaine / Conditions politiques aims to mobilize and set in motion the methods, approaches and concepts of political anthropology. It is grounded in the ethnographic method, in anthropological and historical knowledge, both about remote and near spaces, and in anthropological comparison. Its disciplinary boundaries overlap with those of other social and human sciences, historical and political sciences.

Sections

Reshaping categories, reflecting on theoretical practices

This section analyzes the reciprocation of theories and categories among the various disciplines that deal with the political (as an) object of scrutiny. The aim here is to apprehend  the  current  renewal  of  political  anthropology  through  an  ongoing conversation between theory and field. (Contributions from 25.000 to 40.000 characters.) 

Turbulences

In this section we wish to account for the points of disruption, semantic shifts and muddling of categories that arise in current media debates and deserve particular attention from persons committed to scientific and civic engagement. (Contributions from 25.000 to 30.000 characters.) 

N.B.

Here are a few examples of themes present in current debates that may inspire contributions to Sections ‘Turbulences’ and ‘Reshaping categories’:

  • ‘Racism’, ‘State racism’ and ‘Anti-racism’;
  • ‘Universal’, ‘Creolization’ and ‘Métissage’;
  • ‘Beyond Intersectionality?’;
  • ‘Genesis, uses and misuses of a category: what is islamo-leftism?’;
  • ‘Thinking the gap: from anthropological decentering to historical anachronism’, etc.

A set of articles on categories, theories, and topical issues that are the subject of scientific debate and controversy may be proposed for publication in the Current Debates Section (see below).

Varia

Feature articles that focus primarily on political anthropology are published in this section, as well as contributions on visual arts, musics, litterature, etc. (Articles from 25.000 to 45.000 characters.)
