Tracés: Revue de Sciences Humaines publishes research in the social sciences in two themed issues per year and a handful of special editions. These issues focus on an old debate that has taken a new turn due to current editorial or political circumstances, takes an idea that the various intellectual traditions and disciplines would usually address in isolation and submits it to examination from multiple perspectives, or explores an emerging field of thought. Tracés claims a true pluralism, as attested to by the variety of themes and approaches it publishes. The journal's editorial committee is made up of young researchers from various disciplines and pursues a strong interdisciplinary project. This is manifested in the selection of articles, notes, translations, and interviews that make up each of the issues.
Documenter l'université qui lutte
Documenting the struggling university
2020 was a special year in many ways: Covid-19, but also the strong mobilization against the Research Programming Law in France. It was important for us to make a mobilized issue that would report on what happened during this unusual year.

While anxiety as a category is abundantly mobilized to designate a bodily sensation of malaise peculiar to the individual, this issue of Traces proposes to examine anxiety as a regime of experience in the face of uncertainty, using the tools no longer of psychoanalysis but of the human and social sciences.

Les sciences humaines et sociales au travail (II): Que faire des données de la recherche ?
Social sciences and humanities at work (II): The politics of research data
Faced with a number of contradictory injunctions, researchers have engaged in controversies and debates. Given the many questions and concerns that the current "data moment" provokes, this special issue proposes to take a step back and reflect on our trade and practices.

Considering the current injunction to reintegrate, rehabilitate, and recycle everything, this issue makes the hypothesis that this injunction also tends to deny the fact that industrial capitalist societies massively and constantly produce people and things beyond reclaim.
Thomas Angeletti, Quentin Deluermoz, Juliette Galonnier
What is an epoch ? How to decide where one starts and ends ? What are we the contemporaries of ? And what are the consequences of periodizing attempts on our relationship to time and history ? This special issue of Tracés is precisely dedicated to these questions. This special issue shows the multiple ways to conceive an epoch

Les sciences humaines et sociales au travail (I). Faire revue
Academic journals in the making
Considering the chains of editorial work, the temporalities and social conditions of production, the place assigned to every male and female participant in the publishing process, this issue of Tracés aims to reflect on the effects of the "academic journal" format on the production and reception of knowledge in the humanities and social sciences.
François Jarrige, Stéphane Le Courant, Camille Paloque-Bergès
Infrastructures, techniques et politiques
Infrastructures, technology and politics
This issue of Tracés is seeking to present and delimit today's uses of the word « infrastructures », as well as underlining, with a series of situated case studies, how infrastructural technical layouts are associated with political and social issues.
Samuel Hayat, Judith Lyon-Caen, Frederico Tarragoni
This issue elaborates upon the notion of singularity, in an interdisciplinary way, from a double point of of view: the analytic operations of producing generalizing knowledge from objects deemed singular; and, more empirically, the processes of singularizing individuals from their social practices and ordinary sociabilities.
Traduire et introduire les sciences sociales d'Asie orientale
Translating and introducing the social sciences of East Asia
In the new "Translating and Introducing" issue, the introduction discusses the choice made by the editorial team to translate “What is modernoly?”.
These translations have induced further discussions about geographies and languages of translation, operating epistemologies, as well as scales and modes of comparative analysis, within East Asia.

This issue of Tracés approaches land as a conceptual object, as a power issue, and as the site of many agencies and political possibilities. Ten contributions (translation, note, dialogue and original papers) from several disciplines shed light on a different side of the comeback of land, reinstating land as a major contemporary concern.
