History and analysis of practices. Examples of authority and influence


This year the seminar concentrates on the history of practices. It uses examples from the fields of authority and influence. The time span covered is the 20th and 21st centuries, and while basically historical, the approach is also sociological, philosophical and anthropological. It is a comparative and transnational seminar using research on France, Russia, Brazil and the United States.

Yves Cohen’s sessions are subject to developments in his research and may be modified.
