Thinking about futures in the Humanities and Social Sciences - Session 5. Exploring possible imaginaries: futures, arts and fictions (June 14, 2022)
Cycle of conferences on crises, mutations and anticipations: thinking about futures in the Humanities and Social Sciences (December 2021 to June 2022), organized by the Institut SoMuM
Session 5 - Exploring possible imaginaries: futures, arts and fictions
January 27, 2022 - 10 am to 12:30 pm
For this last session, we will be interested in the ways in which the Humanities and Social Sciences mobilize hybrid approaches, between arts, fictions and sciences, to debate social problems and imagine possible futures. The four papers question, in their own ways, our imaginations by proposing sensory, fictional and playful experiences to their audiences.
Open to doctoral students (registration on ADUM), researchers and teacher-researchers. This lecture series is part of the Institut SoMuM ’s Mediterranean Studies doctoral program.
Wolfgang Cramer (Director of Research at CNRS and at the Institut Méditerranéen de Biodiversité et d’Écologie Marine et Continentale ( IMBE ) and Professor of Global Ecology) is lead author for the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report and coordinates the Mediterranean Experts on Climate and Environmental Change (MedECC ). He will present the functioning of these institutions and his professional experience within them.
Jacques Theys The President of the Société Française de Prospective (vice-president of the and a privileged witness of the evolution of foresight in France) will talk about his career at the interface between science, teaching and politics.
