For the second year in a row, Villa Vassilieff and the Collège d’études mon­di­ales / Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme are launching a call for appli­ca­tions for a research res­i­dency ded­i­cated to Non-Western based researchers in the human­i­ties and social sciences.

The researcher will work both in con­nec­tion with the Global South(s) research chair at the Collège d’études mon­di­ales within Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme and with the team at Villa Vassilieff. The research pro­ject pro­posals will have to relate to the topics of the Collège d’études mon­di­ales and to one of the fol­lowing themes devel­oped by the Chair Global South(s) held by Pr. Françoise Vergès:
- Study the cir­cu­la­tion of ideas and models of artistic and cul­tural pro­duc­tion between Europe and the world.
- Study within a crit­ical per­spec­tive the dif­ferent modes of rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the “other”.
In 2018 we are looking to raise the issue of artistic pro­duc­tion in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions, such as con­flict, migra­tion, polit­ical cen­sor­ship as well as nat­ural dis­as­ters … We will 
favour research pro­jects ques­tioning the role of art as a tool for medi­a­tion, reflec­tion or 
action in sit­u­a­tions of crisis. 
Three areas of research will be par­tic­u­larly con­cerned: Feminist approaches and gender studies ; Decolonial issues ; Climate change and nat­ural dis­as­ters.

Villa Vassilieff covers travel costs for the researcher and the Collège d’études mon­di­ales pro­­­vides a 2 700 euros grant for a 4 weeks research.

The res­i­­dent has access to the rich net­­work of aca­­demic and artistic insti­­tu­­tions built by Villa Vassilieff and Maison des Sciences de l’Homme, and will be offered a cus­­tomized guid­ance through meet­ings with researchers and art pro­fes­­sionals. The res­i­­dent will also ben­­efit from the var­ious research pro­­grams devel­oped by Villa Vassilieff with museums, public and pri­­vate archives, uni­ver­si­ties – such as the inter-uni­ver­sity net­­work Usages des Patrimoines Numérisés, of which Villa Vassilieff has an active role – or art schools; those pro­­grams focus on rarely explored res­­sources. Residents will be invited to con­tribute to the Collège d’études mon­di­ales and Villa Vassilieff respec­­tive events pro­­grams.

The researcher will commit to par­tic­i­pate in activ­i­ties orga­nized by the Global South(s)research chair and Villa Vassilieff in rela­tion to their research. Disciplines con­cerned: phi­los­ophy, polit­ical science, soci­ology, anthro­pology, global his­tory, theory and his­tory of art.

La Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme (FMSH) was set up in 1963 by his­­to­rian Fernand Braudel to pro­­mote the study of human soci­eties and research into social and human sciences (SHS), in rela­­tion with other dis­­­ci­­plines.
Its pri­­mary mis­­sion is to foster the inter­­na­­tion­al­i­sa­­tion of SHS research by encour­aging the mobility and hosting of researchers, devel­oping inter­dis­­­ci­­plinary and col­lab­o­ra­­tive research pro­­jects, dis­­sem­i­­nating knowl­­edge and pro­­moting research.
It houses and pro­­motes col­lec­­tive research infras­truc­­tures and instru­­ments as well as national insti­­tu­­tional SHS net­­works. One of its aims is to host shel­tered foun­­da­­tions that share close ties with its social pur­­pose.
A pri­­vate foun­­da­­tion recog­nised for its ser­vice to the public (FRUP), the FMSH receives funding to carry out its activ­i­ties related to its mis­­sions on a non-profit basis.

Le Collège d’études mon­di­ales, (School of World Studies), cre­ated in 2011 by soci­ol­o­gist Michel Wieviorka, is an aca­­demic centre for the devel­op­­ment of pro­­jects by inter­­na­­tional researchers in a firmly mul­ti­dis­­­ci­­plinary envi­ron­­ment.
It pro­­motes new ways of thinking and working: research con­­ducted by the philoso­pher and the economist, the doctor and the polit­ical ana­lyst, the lit­erary expert and the anthro­pol­o­gist all provide mutual stim­u­la­­tion for under­­s­tanding the changes at play in the con­tem­po­rary world.
The School’s sci­en­tific activity is organ­ised around three key areas: “New norms and insti­­tu­­tions”, “Rethinking social jus­tice” and “Subjectivities: pro­­duc­­tion and knowl­­edge”, designed to study these changes, be they indi­vidual or sys­temic.
The School pro­­gramme is com­­posed of chairs, ini­­ti­a­­tives (pro­­gramme incu­ba­­tion) and research sem­i­­nars.
