Room Q-609
Friday, April 14, 2023 - 18:00 to 19:30

Caroline Ibos and Eric Fassin are Professeurs des universités at the University of Paris VIII in the Department of Sociology. Both are scholars at the forefront of intersectional approaches to the study of contemporary French society. The research of Caroline Ibos explores the way race, gender, and global inequality have remade the world of work and transformed domesticity in France. Eric Fassin is a prominent public intellectual, whose many books explore the politicization of racial and sexual identity, the politics of immigration, and the evolving character of the French Left.

As co-authors of the forthcoming manifesto, "La savante et le politique," Caroline Ibos and Eric Fassin will present their work-in-progress on the threat posed by the French government to academic freedom. At the core of that problem is a threat to scholars who wish to study race, racial inequality, and institutional forms of prejudice in contemporary France.

This event will be in English and French.
