19-24 February 2017, Charmonix (Valley), France

TOPIM stands for “hot TOPics in IMaging”.

As in previous years, our effort is to concentrate on one aspect at the forefront of Imaging Science, a hot topic.

The overall concept is that experienced, high-level scientists, senior and junior scientists from diverse disciplines are spending one week together in an inspiring environment and to provide a platform for knowledge exchange and discussion.

The Institutionalization and the Internationalization of the Social Sciences and the Humanities

23-25 February 2017, EHESS, 105 Bd Raspail, 75006 Paris (amphi Furet). Accès libre

The INTERCO-SSH project sets out to assess the state of the Social Sciences & Humanities (SSH) in Europe and to understand the factors that facilitate or hinder international exchanges. It aims to outline potential future pathways that could promote cooperation across disciplinary and national boundaries.


The project uses the tools of the SSH to study the SSH in their socio-historical context, including their relationship with the political and economic powers. It compares the process of institutionalisation of seven academic disciplines in order to identify the sociological factors that have shaped the “academic unconscious” of scholars. Furthermore, it investigates the transfer of knowledge between countries and disciplines, the geographical mobility of scholars and the circulation of ideas.

INTERCO-SSH project is the first large-scale comparative project of the institutionalisation of seven disciplines in the SSH – Economics, Sociology/Demography, Political Science, Anthropology, Philosopy, Literature, Psychology/Psychoanalysis – in seven countries from 1945 until now (Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Hungary, Argentina). It also analyses exchanges between those countries and other areas: the US, Latin-America (Brazil), and countries in the Global South.

The approach combines three perspectives:

·         Constructing patterns of institutionalisation of the SSH

·         Mapping the exchanges between countries and disciplines

·         Analysing the circulation of paradigms, theories, methods and controversies
