Past Autumn 2013 Events at Sciences Po, Paris

23 September 2013, “Enquêter, de quel droit? Menaces sur l’enquête en sciences sociales“, with Sylvain Laurens and Frédéric Neyrat.

Social sciences in question Seminar: The leading epistemological controversies of our time.

This seminar focused on methodological questions, a fundamental issue in social sciences. They define and base the validity of our research and findings, yet we rarely get to discuss them. The objective of this joint seminar CEE and CERI was precisely that, to provide a place to meet and exchange ideas between the researchers; PhD students were also strongly invited. The aim was to compare our research fields, our methods, our research questions and how to address them, in the light of major epistemological and methodological controversies of today. CEE and the CERI are meeting the challenge to create a collective dynamic at Sciences Po and to strengthen the already existing connections between the two centres.

26-27 November 2013, “International symposium: 2013 Innovations and the Making of Metropolitan Identity“, Paris City Hall.

In 2011 the Ville de Paris instituted a long-term cycle of seminars. Organised with the Laboratoire Techniques, Territoires et Sociétés of Université Paris-Est, the Centre d’études Européennes of Sciences Po, with the support of Paris Métropole and the Atelier Parisien d’Urbanisme (APUR), these meetings brought leading researchers together and aimed to nurture ongoing Parisian thinking on the subject.
