Reading Seminar: Current Trends in Social Sciences

The reading seminar is placed under the scientific responsibility of Helene Le Bail, Catherine Perron and Eric Verdeil.

The objective of this internal seminar is to create a space for transversal discussion and encourage intellectual debates among the academic staff. It is based on a shared reading of mostly recent works in social sciences, chosen on a collective basis by a group of 15 researchers who actively engage in the seminar. The sessions are managed collectively : each session is chaired and organised by a group of two or three colleagues who read the book and organize the discussion.

The other participants agree to either read the book or to read articles from the author, and to attend the seminar.

Sessions are open to all CERI members, including PhD students.

There are 5 sessions organized each year.
