Documenter l'université qui lutte

Edited by Tracés, Camille Noûs


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, including within humanities and social science journals, many of which have positioned themselves in the fight. Tracés, like other journals, declared itself on strike and then resumed its activities during a spring like no other... It is under these conditions that the idea was adopted to turn our calendar upside down, to change the theme planned for this issue.

It was important for us to make a mobilized issue that would report on what happened during this unusual year. And since it was not possible in this temporality to produce articles as we usually did, the challenge became precisely to think and to take a step aside in relation to our ways of doing things, and in relation to the very contents that are ours.

Documenting is also taking this step aside as a way of refusing a race for excellence that requires us to produce more and faster, and in an increasingly global and complex evaluation system. More than a self-criticism, this issue suggests repositioning ourselves within a scientific temporal process in a necessary and salutary slowness, and thus paying more attention to the subject of human and social sciences, as well as to the making of its writings.

Le travail et ses maux
Work and its evils
This dossier brings together contributions dealing with words at work. Coming from political science, sociology, anthropology or information and communication sciences, the authors examine the way in which the neo-managerial discourse is conveyed and imposed by private and public sector executives and the way in which employees respond to it.

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.
