L’auto-fabrication des sociétés: population, politiques publiques, santé / The self regulation of societies : population, social policies, health. This annual seminar aims to shed light on the profound renewal that the history of populations has seen since the last fifteen odd years. It takes into account the « constructed » nature of populations, the articulation between the study of practices, knowledge and institutions, rereading the history of social policies of public hygiene by means of demographic objects (mortality, migrations, families, etc.). More generally, it thus raises questions of construction and self-regulation of societies.
This collective seminar brings together members of ESOPP (Social and Political Studies of Populations, Social Selfare and Health) a group founded within the Centre of Historical Research (Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris, France). The group gathers historians, political scientists and sociologists. Its perspective of work is both comparative and « entangled » as it operates on several areas of national research, both within and outside the European framework. While backed by contemporary researches conducted on the State, it is equally interested in other institutional forms, whether operating on different scales (municipalities or trans national organisations for example) or of a private nature (business firms, associations, churches, etc.) Most of the presentations will be in French. However, English speakers are welcome and papers can be discussed in French and in English.
