New publication: Social Sciences in the "Other Europe" since 1945
Edited by Adela Hîncu and Victor Karady
Social sciences after the Second World War have been targeted by science studies proper, intellectual and institutional histories, as well as research on cultural policies. This volume
brings in the perspective of the “other Europe,” focusing on the disciplines of economics, education science, geography, law, philosophy, political science, semiotics, and sociology.
The nineteen chapters cover a wealth of topics, from epistemological continuities and ruptures, the issue of scholarly autonomy and heteronomy in authoritarian regimes, or the role of the West in the legitimization of critical social sciences, to trans-national influences and transfers.
