The workshop aims at bringing together scientists of different research fields, as well as representatives of various civil associations, sharing a common interest in discussing the distinct meanings that the concept of "emancipation" has acquired throughout history and the varied political projects it has inspired, particularly those with a cosmopolitan scope.
We will discuss at the workshop following aspects of the concept and phenomenon of emancipation:
- emancipation as "thinking for yourself", as "having the same social conditions" etc.
- emancipation by evolution, transformation, rupture, revolution, conquest of rights etc.
- emancipation from a tutor, a guardian, an authority, a situation of inferiority etc.
- cosmopolitanism as emancipation
