La domination en question. Des formes et des normes en temps de crise

Questioning Domination: Forms and Norms in Times of Crisis
Edited by Julien Bouchet and Sébastien Pivoteau

Domination, a classic topic of social sciences derived from Weberian sociology, is the focus of renewed analyses even as the erosion of the Marxist approach seems to condemn it to historiographical oblivion.  While debate rages about the re-emergence of questions of social class, work on the construction of gender, questions about the issue of race, and discussion about notions of empire and imperialism, have enriched reflections on social, economic, political, religious, and cultural relations.  In line with these recent developments, this double issue of Siècles analyzes, at various levels and over an extended period of time, the dialogue between the norms and the forms, objective or behavioral, lying behind relations of domination.  As privileged moments of observation of these dynamics, contributors to this issue have focused on periods during which the notion of domination has been particularly questioned.  The issue of the flexibility of systems of domination accompanies in a synchronic fashion the question of representations of domination during times of crisis.
