Le travail et ses maux

Mots. Les langages du politique

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. They reveal its penetration force, essentially due to its malleability, which allows actors from various backgrounds to appropriate it, and underline its contradictions, between the liberation of work and the imposition of new norms, the re-enchantment of work and the hardening of conditions for workers. It nourishes resistance and contestation, whether through the distancing of corporate communication or by the reinvestment of certain aspects of media discourse. As some of the articles in the dossier underline, the language of struggle is not itself free of contradictions.

Restons groupés ! La construction discursive des relations sociales
Let's stick together! The discursive construction of social relations
Group formation in part happens through discourses that contribute to invent, sustain and transform our imagination of society. This collection of articles proposes an account of the discursive construction of groups, which is wider than the question of naming social or political groups.

Les « petites phrases »
This dossier aims to study a recent phenomenon that is usually called "soundbites". In the wake of pioneer work on that multifaceted subject, we have opted for a transdisciplinary approach that includes the sciences of language and communication as well as social sciences.
