Speaker information

Professor Marc Abeles ,EHESS (L'École des hautes études en sciences sociales),Translated Text: Marc Abeles has dedicated his first works under the direction of Claude Lévi-Strauss, the political practices of a company Southern Ethiopia (Ochollo). Subsequently he conducted research on policy and institutions in the French and European contexts by taking several questions raised about Ochollo. The election, the assemblies practices, symbolic politics are at the heart of its work on political life in Burgundy (in Quiet Days 89, 1989) on the rituals of François Mitterrand (Anthropology of the State, 1990) the national Assembly (An anthropologist in the Assembly, 2000), the avatars of political representation (the failed policy, 2005) and the European Parliament (Lifestyle in the European Parliament, 1992). In 1993, at the request of the European Commission, he led an anthropological research within this organization. More recently he has addressed the issue of globalization in two different perspectives in the survival Policy (2006) where he discusses the displacement of politics and the emergence of new centers of power, and Anthropology of Globalization (2008) where it analyzes the epistemological consequences of changes produced by globalization and suggests new directions for anthropology.
