Dr Natalie Doyle, from our School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures & Linguistics, has been invited to give a presentation in Paris on 6 October at a conference devoted to the latest book published by Marcel Gauchet earlier this year, Le Nouveau monde.

The importance of this book, that proposes a global interpretation of the changes that have affected the liberal democracies over the course of the past 40 years, building on a wide range of interdisciplinary research, is such that it deserves to be addressed from the perspectives of philosophy, sociology, economics, and political sciences. Dr Doyle will comment on ‘The Globalisation of the Nation State', providing an overseas perspective on this crucial topic.

The event is organised by l'Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) and will take place on Friday 6 October on 105 Bd. Raspail, Paris, at the amphitheater François-Furet.

Listen to our latest podcast (below) with Dr Doyle about her research that has culminated into a new book, Marcel Gauchet’s Loss of Common Purpose: Imaginary Islam and the Crisis of European Democracy. Coming out in October, it is a world-first analysing Gauchet’s early writings to the present day.
