Stratégie d'établissement

This research position is a priority for the CNRS, specifically for its Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (InSHS).
the contemporary multiplication of visual representations, their transformations linked to the rapidity of technological change, the rise of their worldwide circulation, the numerous and contrasting reappropriations to which they give rise, but also the new research practices (digital tools, artificial intelligence…) arouses an increased interest in visual studies and research on the arts. The CNRS is strongly involved in these fields, both in terms of the study of past societies, notably through excavations of decorated caves, work on the iconography of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary societies, and research on aesthetics and artistic performances.

This research position is also related to the role of the CNRS as the scientific leader for state-funded research programs on cultural and creative industries. It is thus of particular relevance.
Finally, this research position will contribute to the InSHS recruitment strategy in the field of archaeology-heritage-cultural studies.

Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil

The potential host laboratories are in various disciplinary fields: archaeology—history, art history, aesthetics, and cultural studies. They have been selected based on: a) their key position in research on visual arts and graphic expression and b) their inclusion in a very promising academic context in these fields. They are joint units with academic partners with which the InSHS wishes to develop or already has strong scientific ties.

Stratégie Internationale

It will be expected from the successfull candidate that he/she implements actions and partnerships in the research field of the present tenure track and submits a project to European calls (ERC, Horizon Europe Consortium, etc.) during the 4 years of his/her contract

Résumé du projet scientifique

The project is in line with the development of Visual Studies and Visual Culture, and in particular with the multidisciplinary perspectives that they intend to promote within the humanities and social sciences. It involves various approaches and disciplines: aesthetic, anthropology, archaeometry, cognitive, technical, social, economic, and political analyses. They contribute to the knowledge of visual phenomena in every dimension of cultural life. In this sense, may be considered visual objects: engravings, parietal art, drawings and paintings, sculptures, printed media, photographs, audiovisual forms, performances… The researcher will aim at understanding visual cultures not as circumscribed, closed, and homogeneous universes;he/she will consider their making, their context of emergence, changes, and even destruction. In particular, three topics will be of particular interest:
1/The conditions of production and dissemination: ethnological, historical, and social contexts of creation;the emergence of symbolic representations;genetics of visual and graphic works;transfers, encounters, dissemination, adaptations, resistance, changes, use [practical, professional, ideological…];questions of reception and evaluation [public, expertise…]
2/ The making of norms [technical, economic, legal, social, moral, political dimension];the production of meaning [symbolic dimension];the social and political dimensions of visual arts and graphic expression [ex. visual culture linked to urban spaces or social networks];visual aspects of fame and popularity …;3/ the status of visual artworks: the real or supposed autonomy of graphic expressions in the history of representations;the relationships between visible/invisible, visible/unspeakable, the status of visual expression in the hierarchy of the arts

Résumé du projet d'enseignement

The teaching program will be discussed according to the research centre where the laureate will be affiliated.

Environnement Financier

  • Total financé (dont package ANR) : 200 k€
  • Total du projet : 200 k€

Diffusion scientifique

The dissemination of the results will be done through world-class scientific productions: publications, patents, software... In addition, the results will be communicated to various  targets such as scientific communities, media, decision makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools may  be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.

Science ouverte

The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favor of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible  as possible and closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its laboratories accessible , in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, except for specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, to be more qualitative and to take into account all facets of the researcher's profession.

Science et société

The relationship between science and society is now recognized as a full dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will contribute to informing public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors from the project’s socio-economic and cultural eco-system .


The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalized by contracts, on international presence, on the promotion of work to  multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
