Seminar organized by the History Committee from October 2012 to May 2014 with the support of the Sciences-Po History Centre and the Maison des Sciences de l'homme Foundation
Is a history of cultural democratization and its political implementation possible?
This is the reflection that the History Committee wanted to ask by launching in February 2012 a call for papers.
The many proposals received were submitted to a scientific committee composed of historians, sociologists, political science researchers (Philippe POIRRIER, Olivier DONNAT, Emmanuel WALLON, Laurent MARTIN, Anne-Marie BERTRAND, Vincent DUBOIS and Guy SAEZ) and allowed the elaboration of the program of the seminar Cultural democratization through contemporary history » coordinated by Pierre Moulinier and Jean-Claude Pompougnac, correspondents of the History Committee.
According to a principle of work usual to the history committees, each session of the seminar gave rise to the intervention of actors-witnesses and is animated by a member of the scientific committee.
These sessions took place on a Monday a month (from 2pm to 6pm) from 18 October 2012 to 5 May 2014 at Sciences Po (75006 Paris).
This seminar was the subject of a presentation by Jean-Claude Pompougnac (correspondent of the History Committee and coordinator of this program) on the occasion of the conference "Cultural democratization as a horizon" organized by ENSSIB in 2012 [watch the video] (54')
