Marsouin is organising its annual conference on the digital society on 23 and 24 May 2019 in Rennes. The objective of this multidisciplinary conference is to better understand digital uses and transformations and their societal impacts. Researchers in the humanities and social sciences will question the socio-economic, political and ethical issues of digital technologies and practices. This year, the Marsouin conference is opening up internationally. Papers may be submitted and presented in French or English:
Marsouin is a scientific interest group created in 2002 at the initiative of the Regional Council of Brittany. It brings together research teams in the human and social sciences from the 4 Breton universities and 3 grandes écoles, 16 laboratories, working on digital uses. Marsouin's originality lies in the networking of researchers in the human and social sciences who are interested in digital practices and the digital transformations of our societies. Marsouin allows researchers to share tools: methodological expertise on the one hand and support structures (especially financial) for research on the other.
Marsouin cooperates in scientific projects supported by the ANR, MSHB, local authorities or other public and private actors. Marsouin is an active member of the World Internet Project (WIP), an international collaborative research project involving institutions in more than 30 countries dedicated to the analysis of social, economic and political transformations related to the evolution of digital uses.
