SCIENTIFIC AFFILIATIONS OF ISTHIA LECTURERS AND RESEARCHERS
All ISTHIA’s lecturers and researchers are affiliated with the following research laboratories: CERTOP, LISST and CAMS.
The Centre d’Étude et de Recherche Travail Organisation Pouvoir (CERTOP) is a research unit run jointly by the CNRS, the Université Toulouse – Jean Jaurès and the Université Toulouse III – Paul Sabatier. It has about 70 permanent staff (researchers, lecturers and researchers, research support staff) and about 30 doctoral students, from several disciplines in the Human and Social Sciences (sociology, information and communication, economics).
CERTOP is organised around four key areas:
- Work intelligence (INTRA), with the goal of removing productive activities from an approach that confines work within a sociological perspective of work-domination, in which the worker is an individual who is exploited under the weight of the rules of work, and from an approach in which work is confined within a sociological perspective of organisation in which the worker is a mere “strategic actor”,
- Health and food (SANTAL), studying the relationship between Health and Food, means of food socialisation, the junction between risks and food concerns, as well as restructuring the health system, looking at changing the role of patients and restructuring medical work,
- Ecological transitions. Risks, innovations and tourism (TERNOV), focused on the emergence of a new phase in the evolution of ecological issues (environment and health), in particular the relationship —questioned from the point of view of ecological justice— between ecological transition and how socio-economic activities are structured (energy, innovation, tourism),
- Public and markets (PUMA), using market, educational and political social spaces to focus on processes of institutionalisation and resistance, on political and market rules and behaviour, as well as on the relationship between institutions and users (students, citizens, consumers, for example), to understand how policies are produced.
The health and food area (SANTAL) is the main focus for ISTHIA’s lecturers and researchers, who include Laurence Tibère (Deputy Director of CERTOP), Anne Dupuy (Head of SANTAL), but also Jean-Pierre Poulain, Jacinthe Bessière, Driss Boumeggouti, Cyrille Laporte, Paul-Emmanuel Pichon, Amandine Rochedy, Jean-Philippe Sajus, Christophe Serra-Mallol and Frédéric Zancanaro.
