The research seminar « Maintaining / supporting: fragility as a mode of existence » will welcome

Emmanuel Bonnet, Diego Landivar,Alexandre Monnin et Cyprien Tasset

Sociologie pragmatiste et effondrement :prendre soin des mondes en train de se dé-faire

[Pragmatist sociology and collapse: taking care of the worlds being un-done]



At a time when industrial development threatens the habitability of the Earth, or even when it can lead to a “collapse”, research approaches need to be radically rethought. This is the focus of the investigations conducted by Origens. From a pragmatic perspective, the question is no longer just to compose the pluralistic proliferation of expanding worlds: we must now learn to take care of worlds in the process of being undone.

The seminar will consider these questions based on in-depth surveys conducted by Origens in various fields: among farmers and peasants, indigenous communities or “modern” organizations such as companies, artistic groups, or on digital fields.
