Tracés: Revue de Sciences Humaines publishes research in the social sciences in two themed issues per year and a handful of special editions. These issues focus on an old debate that has taken a new turn due to current editorial or political circumstances, takes an idea that the various intellectual traditions and disciplines would usually address in isolation and submits it to examination from multiple perspectives, or explores an emerging field of thought. Tracés claims a true pluralism, as attested to by the variety of themes and approaches it publishes. The journal’s editorial committee is made up of young researchers from various disciplines and pursues a strong interdisciplinary project. This is manifested in the selection of articles, notes, translations, and interviews that make up each of the issues.

Latest issue
Traduire et introduire les sciences sociales d’Asie orientale

Translating and introducing the social sciences of East Asia
Edited by Olivier Allard and Christelle Rabier

In the new “Translating and Introducing” issue, the introduction discusses the choice made by the editorial team to translate “What is modernoly?” by urban ethnographer and architect Kon Wajirô (1927), from the Japanese language; a reflection in Chinese by the political scientist Yu Keping on governmental innovations (2010); and a research in Corean by sociologist Yang Hyunah on perceptions of aborting practices in South-Corea (2013). These translations and their commentaries have induced further discussions about geographies and languages of translation, operating epistemologies, as well as scales and modes of comparative analysis, within East Asia and globally.
