Jean-Louis Fabiani’s project has three aims: to give a precise account of the current circulation of ideas in the social sciences; to produce an overview of “the reclaiming of the classics”; and to use fieldwork on post-socialism in Central Europe and compare it with post-colonial situations in order to analyze disciplinary changes.
