How can critical approaches to technologies and instruments of knowledge production renew the sociological understanding of global phenomena such as migration and the environment? A first part of this seminar will be dedicated to a review of classical texts in Science and Technology Studies as well as Governance and Public Policy. The second part will be more empirically oriented and divided into two thematic units. The first thematic unit will focus on controversies over State governance of risks, technologies and nature. The second thematic unit will explore the quantification of migration, circulations and State recording of population groups. Each session will center on the presentation of particular case studies as well as related theoretical and methodological approaches.
