CSI Research Seminar – Maintaining/Supporting: fragility as a mode of existence
05 December 2018 • 11h-13h • Mines ParisTech

With  Sophie Houdart, End to end. What changes when considering Fukushima as a fragile environment rather than a contaminated territory.

Sophie Houdart is a senior researcher at the CNRS and a member of the Laboratory of Ethnology and Comparative Sociology (LESC, UMR 7186, CNRS/Université Paris Nanterre). Her main research interests are both the local methods and practices of construction of modernity in Japan and the theme of creation and innovation. Her current research focuses on air and soil measurements by which populations, sometimes far from Fukushima, assess, on their own account, the radioactivity content of their environment. Those who wish can read an article resulting from this research « Les répertoires subtils d’un terrain contaminé », published in the issue of Techniques & Culture entitled Mondes infimes that Sophie Houdart edited in 2017 with Tiziana Nicoletta Beltrame and Christine Jungen

Organisers: Jérôme Denis, Anne-Sophie Haeringer, Antoine Hennion or David Pontille
