America! America? The Appropriations of French Sociology in the USA (1970 - 2009)

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper analyses the appropriations of French sociologists in the USA over the last four decades. It demonstrates that it this presence is dual, with a small minority receiving intense scrutiny while the vast majority is largely ignored. It also shows that the use of the work by French sociologists is highly selective. When cited in the USA, these authors are mobilized as social theorists. We then proceed to account for this reception. To do so, we investigate three particular aspects: the intellectual structures of both fields, the local logics in the receiving field, and the multiple lives of an author. Primarily based on bibliometric data collected on 35 important US journals, the paper offers an empirical assessment of the merits and limitations of automated data analysis techniques in times of renewed interest for these sources and methods.
