Camille Robcis enseigne dans le département d’histoire et de français à l’université de Columbia, à New York. Elle est spécialiste en histoire intellectuelle, politique, et légale de la France contemporaine et s’intéresse en particulier à l’intersection des idées et de la politique.
Son premier livre, The Law of Kinship: Anthropology, Psychoanalysis, and the Family in France (Cornell University Press, 2013) (traduit en Français comme La loi de la parenté : la famille, les experts et la république par les Éditions Fahrenheit en 2016) a gagné le prix du meilleur livre de la Berkshire Conference of Women Historians. Il examine comment les législateurs français ont fait appel à l’anthropologie et la psychanalyse structuraliste (et en particulier à plusieurs concepts de Claude Lévi-Strauss et Jacques Lacan) pour réaffirmer l’importance de la différence sexuelle lors des débats autour de la famille, du PACS, des lois de bioéthique, et du mariage pour tous.
Son deuxième livre, Disalienation: Politics, Philosophy, and Radical Psychiatry in Postwar France (University of Chicago Press, 2021), retrace l’histoire de la psychothérapie institutionnelle, un mouvement né en France pendant la deuxième guerre mondiale qui appela à une profonde transformation de la théorie et de la clinique psychiatrique à travers le prisme du marxisme et de la psychanalyse lacanienne.
Elle travaille en ce moment sur un nouveau projet qui tente d’expliquer pourquoi plusieurs mouvements populistes à travers le monde depuis les années 1990 se sont rassemblés autour de leur opposition à ce qu’ils nomment la « théorie du genre. »
Ses articles sont parus dans divers journaux scientifiques tels que Modern Intellectual History, Yale French StudiesSocial TextFrench Historical StudiesDiscourse, South Atlantic QuarterlyJournal of the History of Ideas, et Journal of Modern History.
Après avoir passé un baccalauréat français, Camille Robcis a obtenu sa license en histoire à Brown University et son doctorat à Cornell. Elle a enseigné dans le département d’histoire de Cornell pendant dix ans avant de rejoindre Columbia en 2018. Elle a obtenu des bourses du Penn Humanities Forum, LAPA (Princeton Law and Public Affairs), le National Endowment for the Humanities, l’Institute for Advanced Study, et la John Simon Guggenheim Foundation.
