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.

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.

Social sciences and humanities at work (II): The politics of research data
