Call for Papers für eine Veranstaltung zu Politiken sozialwissenschaftlicher Wissensproduktion

Die Tagung findet am 28.-29.04.2022 an der ENS Paris Saclay statt und wird vom DFG-Forschungsnetzwerk Politische Soziologie transnationaler Felder in Kooperation mit der CNRS-Gruppe Institutions et Dynamiques Historiques de l’Économie et de la Société ausgerichtet. Geplant ist eine Veranstaltung in Präsenz, im Bedarfsfall wird auf ein hybrides/digitales Format gewechselt.

Einreichungsfrist für Beitragsvorschläge ist der 31.09.2021.

Social sciences’ place is as much in academics as it is with government. As such, political sciences, sociology and economics always aim both at charting and disenchanting the world as well as at pro-jecting desired future societal states and reflexively optimizing governance. In this double role – as academic disciplines and as professions of government – social sciences not only shape practices of governing but are being shaped in this interaction themselves (Abbott 1988). While this Janus-faced character isn’t exactly a novelty (Weber 1988, Steinmetz 2016), recent developments have changed the social sciences’ position at the centre of an increasingly transnational “knowledge warfare” (Kauppi 2018): On the one hand, the quantification of academic meritocracy and its projectified third-party-funded move towards an output-oriented production regime introduced new ways in which autonomous social scientific distinctions have to take societal and especially governmental requirements into account (Bérard/Crespin 2010, Münch 2014). On the other hand, new modes of governance in-creasingly rely on scientific legitimacy and represent an increasing demand for social scientific expertise, particularly so in transnational contexts such as the European Union (Heilbron et al. 2018; Cohen 2013; Dezalay/Garth 2011; Georgakakis/de Lasalle 2012).
