QUOI

Appel à communication – Journées d’études de l’Association Charles Gide 2019 : les évolutions des frontières disciplinaires de l’économie avec les autres sciences

QUAND ET OU

Montréal (QC, Canada), 25–27 juin 2019

SUJET

L’histoire des sciences économiques montre que celles-ci ont de tout temps emprunté aux autres disciplines (science morale, sociologie, biologie, physique, psychologie, science politique, etc.) pour se développer et innover. De la même manière, les sciences économiques ont été une source d’inspiration pour d’autres disciplines (droit, physique, gestion, géographie, etc.). Si les transferts entre disciplines ont déjà été analysés dans la littérature, on assiste depuis quelques décennies à une certaine redéfinition des frontières disciplinaires avec, entre autres, une fragmentation croissante des savoirs en sciences économiques qui questionne aussi les frontières intra-disciplinaires.

Les évolutions des frontières disciplinaires des sciences économiques soulèvent de multiples questions. Ces journées étudieront ces évolutions afin de discuter le périmètre des sciences économiques et les influences croisées avec les autres sciences. Les propositions pourront proposer une perspective globale (comme les liens entre sciences économiques et droit), une étude de cas (comme le rôle du Sante Fe Institute) ou le travail d’auteurs particuliers.

ECHEANCE ET CANDIDATURE

  • Soumission des propositions avant le 1er décembre 2018, à l’adresse gide2019@teluq.ca
  • Réponse aux propositions le 20 décembre 2018
  • Envoi des textes définitifs avant le 25 mai 2019

Chaque proposition doit comporter au plus 500 mots pour un article et 700 mots pour une session et doit être soumise avant le 1er décembre 2018 en utilisant l’adresse gide2019@teluq.ca. Les propositions peuvent être en français ou en anglais.

Une sélection des articles sera publiée dans un numéro spécial du Journal of History of Economic Thought (https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/journal-of-the-history-of-economic-thought) coédité par John B. Davis et Franck Jovanovic.

Il est également prévu de publier un recueil de papiers pour un volume coédité par John B. Davis et Franck Jovanovic dans la série Routledge Advances in Social Economics series (https://www.routledge.com/Routledge-Advances-in-Social-Economics/book-series/SE0071).


  WHAT

Call for papers – Charles Gide Workshop 2019: Evolutions of the disciplinary boundaries of Economics with the other sciences

WHEN / WHERE

Montréal (QC, Canada), June 25-27th 2019

TOPICS

The history of Economics shows that this discipline has always borrowed from other sciences (Moral sciences, Sociology, Biology, Physics, Psychology, Political science, Mathematics, etc.) to develop itself and innovate. In the same vein, Economics has been a source of inspiration for other disciplines (Law, Physics, Management, Geography, etc.). While the exchanges between Economics and other disciplines have already been analyzed in the literature, the continuing redefinition of disciplinary boundaries brings new elements to historians. The growing fragmentation of knowledge in Economics that is accompanied by a growing autonomy of some of its subfields also questions the intradisciplinary
boundaries. The evolutions of the disciplinary boundaries of Economics raise many questions. How were these boundaries defined? How did they evolve? Is there a disciplinary coherence in Economics? Can we identify in the history of Economics periods of expansion or narrowing of the scope of Economics? Analyzing the disciplinary boundaries raises the question of the links between the various sciences. What relationships does Economics maintain with other disciplines and how do these links evolve over time? What is the significance of issues about multidisciplinarity, interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity in Economics? How do neighboring disciplines define their scope in relation to Economics? How do economists push boundaries, apart from economic imperialism and related with interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary work or collaboration across disciplines on specific issues? How do scientists from other disciplines change the boundaries of Economics? How does the collaboration of economists with other scientists redefine the boundaries of both
sciences? Sustainable development is an illustration of how Economics interacts with other disciplines to innovate.
By analyzing changes in the disciplinary boundaries of Economics, this workshop will help to clarify the scope of this discipline. Proposals illustrating a global perspective (such as the relationship between Law and Economics), a case study (such as the role of the Santa Fe institute), as well as the work of specific authors or on topics or subjects traditionally considered outside of economics are especially welcome.
