Timetable & learning outcomes

This unique summer school in France and the French-speaking world explores epistemological, historical and educational reflections that integrate the consequences of postcolonial approaches both in the training and scientific mediation of social and human sciences. Ultimately, the course questions the North vs. South divide in the face of globalization.

The program is designed for young or future lecturer-researchers in social sciences from different global contexts. Throughout, the main objective will be to question the capacity of social sciences to produce a common framework of reasoning from different points of view. Participants will be provided with resources (historical knowledge, authors and reference "canons", past and contemporary epistemological and terminological controversies) and exercises (comparative analysis of canons, terminologies and references mobilized in the practice of research, teaching and mediation) allowing them to introduce cross-perspectives into their disciplinary training activities, on both the challenge of globalization and the challenge of connecting viewpoints.

Course content will cover lessons on the theoretical and historical perspectives of social and human sciences and the development of their teaching and research references. Practical work will be carried out on the basis of comparative data or materials provided by the participants and their own references in research, teaching and scientific mediation practices.
