Conférences de Gurminder Kaur Bhambra (University of Warwick), professeure invitée à l'EHESS

Gurminder Kaur Bhambra (University of Warwick, Department of Sociology), professeure invitée à l'EHESS du 1er au 31 mars 2017, présentera ses travaux aux dates suivantes :

"Modernity, Multiple Modernities, and Arguments for Connected Sociologies" 

Dans le cadre du séminaire de Kapil Raj "Une histoire globale des sciences ? A quel prix..."

Mardi 7 mars de 17h à 19h - EHESS, salle 9, 105 boulevard Raspail, 75006 Paris

Theorists of multiple modernities argue that two fallacies are to be avoided. The first, is that there is only one modernity. The second, is that looking from the West to the East is necessarily a form of Eurocentrism. In challenging the dominant accounts of the emergence and development of modernity, I argue for the idea of ‘connected sociologies’ and for a reconstruction of historical sociology at a global level.

 

"From Cosmopolitanism to the Postcolonial Reconstruction of Europe" 

Dans le cadre du séminaire de Kapil Raj "Une histoire globale des sciences ? A quel prix..."

Mardi 14 mars de 17h à 19h - EHESS, salle 9, 105 boulevard Raspail, 75006 Paris

Most accounts of ‘cosmopolitan Europe’ acknowledge only the diversity between states and do not account for the diversity within states as expressed through multicultural ‘others’. This diversity, I argue, can only be properly understood if we take seriously the colonial histories that constitute ‘postcolonial Europe’. As such, I argue for the need to understand Europe itself as postcolonial – not in the sense of being beyond colonialism, but as a provocation to think its colonial history as constitutive of its postcolonial present.

 

"Contesting the Political Implications of Conceptual Distinctions: Citizens and Migrants"

Dans le cadre du séminaire de Nancy L. Green "L'histoire comparée et les migrations contemporaines"

Mardi 21 mars de 13h à 15h - EHESS, salle 5, 105 boulevard Raspail, 75006 Paris

The idea of the political community as a national political order has been central to European self-understanding and to European social science. Yet, many European states were imperial states as much as they were national states and so the political community of the state was always much broader and more racially stratified than is usually acknowledged. In this talk I want to ask how taking seriously the broader histories of empire and colonialism would enable us to rethink these central concepts.

 

"Locating Brexit: From Commonwealth to the EU and Back Again?"

Dans le cadre du Séminaire International de Sciences Sociales de l'EHESS

Lundi 27 mars de 17h à 19h - EHESS, salle 13, 105 boulevard Raspail, 75006 Paris

The UK referendum on continued membership of the European Union, which produced a victory for the ‘Leave’ campaign, was less a debate on the pros and cons of membership than a proxy for discussions about race and migration; specifically, who belonged and had rights (or should have rights) and who didn’t (and shouldn’t). One of the key slogans of those arguing for exit from the EU was: ‘we want our country back’. The racialized discourses at work here were not only present explicitly in the politics of the event; they are implicit in much social scientific analysis. Populist political claims are mirrored by an equivalent social scientific ‘presentism’ that elides proper historical context. In this talk, I discuss the importance of understanding Brexit in the context of an historical sociological understanding that would enable us to make better sense of the politics of the present.
