The notion of performativity is alive and well in research on the information and communication sciences, but also in closely related disciplines. Social science researchers have placed at the center of the questioning not only the language part of action, but also the pragmatic nature of language, that is the language acts themselves. Études de Communication opens the debate on this multidisciplinary idea of performativity to establish a panorama of the ways it is used. How is this notion mobilized? What place does it hold in the research objectives to which it is—or could be—associated: organizational communication, scientific practice, links between language and work, writing practices, the artistic world, media discourse, market economy, interactions represented in the media . . . ?
