The transdisciplinary aim of the “Ethics, Technologies, Humans, Organizations, Society” (ETHOS) research team seeks to articulate the various approaches used in management sciences, human and social sciences, political sciences and linguistics in order to question the development of organizations and hyper-modern societies in the light of their numerous ethical, social and human challenges.
Three research topics are given particular focus:
Digital technologies permit individuals to open up to new forms of social interaction and enrollment within public sphere; this topic tends to question the changes which such technologies engender from a socio-ethical perspective.
Based on the premise that organizations are above all human and social constructs, the research focusing on this topic studies organizations using a humanist approach, open to reflexiveness, recognition of the other and the multiple voices and languages which find expression within and around companies.
The research surrounding this topic observes data design, aesthetic experiences, museum strategies, performative effects, films, theatres or new media, as much with regard to the affective reactions they produce as their political impact and the configuration of the imaginary.
