The 15th and 16th of December, a workshop on the subject „French pragmatism and the renewal of contemporary sociology“ will be organized by the Institute of Sociological Studies (Faculty of Social Sciences), the Department of Historical Sociology (Faculty of Humanities), and the French Research Center in Humanities and Social Sciences – CEFRES.
In the last two decades or so, a novel approach to sociology is increasingly used by sociologists and other scholars (e.g. historians, anthropologists, economists) in a range of research endeavours. The workshop will explore the fundamentals of this approach and the insights it has brought, and still brings, to contemporary sociological and interdisciplinary research. The upshot is to explore the rich potentialities of pragmatic sociology and to discuss its relevance and usage in Czech sociology. Prof. Laurent Thévenot will open the workshop with a lecture on the recent and current further developments in his work.
Please send your proposition (150–200 words) to the organizers before November 15th.
