Course Syllabus

Abstract

This course will discuss dynamics and reconfigurations of politics in the contemporary world. It will focus on controversies and debates between institutional politics (based on representation, centralisation, hierarchies, civism, etc.) and empirical enquiries of citizens discussing politics (through participation, decentralisation, networks, bifurcation, etc.). This will give the ground for a reflexion about a «new spirit» of politics and its difficulties in the contemporary world, especially in France and Russia. The course will be organized in two parts, dealing respectively with new forms of criticism and participation in society (I) and reconfigurations of the politics and of government (II).
