Which questions for what research? The Humanities at the crossroads of disciplines

June, 16th 2017. University of Lorraine. Campus du Saulcy, Metz.


 

Following the 2016 edition on the theme of interdisciplinarity, this third one-day international conference aims at bringing together young researchers from all over the world to reflect on their research practices. The starting point of any kind of research is to question its goals, and how they can be achieved. Therefore, we need to ask ourselves which questions are at work in research. In the current academic context, it is more and more common to call on the expertise of other disciplines – both methodologically and conceptually – which leads to the decompartmentalization of disciplines. It is thus only logical to consider research questions as being multifaceted, as each methodology, and each discipline, can shed new light on them.

We anticipate contributions related, but not limited to, the following themes:

  1. What epistemological and deontological approaches should researchers adopt today?

  2. What are the implications of the human factors behind research?

  3. Which methodolog(y/ies) for what research; Where are the boundaries between disciplines?

  4. Inter/transdisciplinarity and the contributions of research and new technologies to society: how can different perspectives be reconciled?

  5. How does research interact with its inheritance?

Participants can contribute with a poster presentation (A0 Format) or an oral paper, which should not exceed 20 minutes. A discussion/questions session will follow all forms of presentations. Proposals (350 to 500 words) should be submitted in French or English before April, 30th 2017 on our website. They will be examined in a double-blind test by at least two members of our scientific committee. For more detailed information about the proposed themes, please consult our event page at https://jijc2017.event.univ-lorraine.fr/. Moreover, the proceedings of this international conference are planned to be published. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at: jijc2017-contact@univ-lorraine.fr
