    1st interdisciplinary encounters on animal work

    Animals are working too: such is the inconoclastic proposal that will be at the heart of the oral presentations and discussions of the First interdisciplinary Colloquium on Animal Work which will take place on 8th and 9th april 2016 in Paris. Indeed, millions of domestic animals participate in human activities that fall within the scope of human labour. And without their participation, or even with their collaboration, such work could not be achieved. Yet animal work often remains an invisible aspect of human societies, and is rarely studied by scholars.

    1st International Symposium: Hope, Betrayal and Trust

    Part of the Research Program on: Lost Virtues, Found Vices

    This trans-disciplinary research project is interested in exploring the complex and fluid relationships between hope and trust, and how might betrayal play a productive role in this bond. As concepts, ideas or simple notions, hope and trust seem to have simultaneously lost contemporary currency while being ever more necessary in our every day lives. We seem resigned to a kind of hopelessness, seem unwilling to trust others and are ready and willing to betray whomever we might need to in order to advance our own careers or personal agendas. Yet new technologies require us to place personal information online, to communicate with strangers, and to hold onto the promise of happiness. How are our maintenance of hope, our need to trust and our willingness to betray intertwined? How are these concepts evolving?
