Theme 2. The fabrication of otherness, racism and discriminations

A second theme includes research that interrogates the “fabrication of otherness”. These studies share a common approach to the processes linked to the differentiation and the social hierarchization on the basis of ethnic, “racial”, and national origin – whether real or assumed —, and the way that these processes participate more widely in debates and in strategies or positions adopted in public space. This perspective is underlined by a multi-faceted issue, namely the articulation between relationships of power, on the one hand, and the social definition of collectivities (or even groups) that are constituted on the basis of an origin which is attributed or claimed affirmatively.
