    Call for papers - Modern

    Theories of the imagination and contemporary political economics

    Cet atelier international est organisé par le Collectif de recherche sur l’imaginaire (CRI). Il a pour objectif des présentations courtes laissant la place à des discussions longues, chaque participant retenu devant soumettre un texte à l’étude avant la rencontre. Les discussions approfondies permettront d’étoffer la prochaine programmation de recherche du Collectif. La problématique qui nous intéresse se situe à la croisée des chemins entre une actualisation des théories de l’imaginaire et une interrogation quant au rôle joué par le concept d’imaginaire dans l’économie politique contemporaine.

Two state-of-art methods have emerged up to date. The first approach builds on the tools of evidence based medicine: systematic review and meta-analysis. The second approach, called realist synthesis, is rooted in social sciences methodologies. This research seminar will present and discuss the available methods (see programme below).
