This conference on drunkenness will embrace an international multidisciplinary approach based on history, anthropology, and ethnology, but will also be open to other views: from medicine to psychology, from the history of art to philosophy, from geography to economics, and from classical and modern literature to sociology. The field of study of this two-day conference will be European, and even worldwide, and various perspectives will be compared in order to take stock of research.
To ensure coherence in the programme, here are four lines of questioning, which will also be topics for thought and discussion.
1. Getting drunk – with what and how much?
2. Good drunkenness. Why get drunk and how to justify it?
3. The opposition to drunkenness: actors, views, and practices
4. Typology of drunkenness from antiquity to the present day
The papers will be given in French or English.
Deadline : October 1st 2013
