Our work can be divided into four areas :

1. Acts of Creation

2. Work, Capabilities and Biographies

3. Fabriques de la frontière

4. L’effet des langues : herméneutique, épistémologie, historicités

The Centre George Simmel has acquired a national and international visibility in each of these domains, which are interdisciplinary by nature and mutually complementary. Three broad thematics serve to bring out their synergy and facilitate their translation into collective research dynamics : the third party perspective, the perspective of lived experience and the question of scale. Together they assemble our researchers around common modes of interrogation.
