My research interests focus on objects whose identification and characterization is discussed, between societal problems and mental health issues, between "psychic" approaches and analyzes by the social sciences.
This is the case of the phenomenon "hikilomori" or the question of social invisible: these new forms of social withdrawal of young people, disinvested and recluse for several months or years. As part of a collective and interdisciplinary project BARTLE, we seek, based on the exemplary case of "hikikomori" in Japan, to produce a comparative report on the way in which the "social withdrawals" are perceived, named and taken in charge. France, Japan and Italy, and to understand the collective dynamics that come into play and engage in thinking about family, school, care, digital technologies, self-construction in the age of autonomy.
I also participate in the SAGE collective study on "The Senses of Agitation in Children. Diagnostic quests, family investments and professional looks around children who are known to be agitated "(funded by the Pfizer Foundation). The purpose of the survey is to study the pathways of children identified as agitated and / or inattentive and their families. It seeks to restore the complex dynamics that articulate territories, families, the worlds of care and school in diverse cultural, intellectual, institutional and political contexts (France, Chile, Brazil).
In both cases, the approach is comparative and multidisciplinary, involving sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, psychiatrists and psychoanalysts.
I participate in this spirit to the international network nonconformes.
