Globalisation et sciences sociales
How have global processes and global histories shaped the social sciences? While social scientists have thought a great deal about globalization, few have asked how the scales and depth of interdependence between societies have shaped the models and techniques – the cognitive styles – of the social sciences. This symposium aims to discuss the past, present, and future of the social sciences from an international perspective. With hubs in Princeton University and the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme in Paris, we plan to explore how new global scales remap disciplinary inquiry. This event, we hope, will evolve into a working group and yield an anthology of future-oriented essays that chart alternative pathways for social science research.
Organized by Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme and Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
