Anthropologie politique de la vie académique : Ethnographie des circulations de chercheurs indiens en sciences sociales entre l'Inde et l'Europe

Abstract : This thesis addresses the experiences and representations proper to the construction of an academic life amongst Indian scholars in Social Sciences working in Europe, specially in the United Kingdom and Germany. In order to put these trajectories and narratives into perspective, this research also takes into account the trajectories of those who went back to India after their studies in Europe. Drawing upon an ethnographic study carried out in England, Germany (between October 2015 and July 2016) and India (entre February and April 2017), where I could conduct interviews and participate in the academic life of a number of research centres, I propose an analysis of the institutional and social conditions that forge these circulations, as well as the narratives and representations about such experiences of mobility. Regarding its methodology, this research consists of a multi-sited ethnography of a post-colonial academic space made of networks linking India, England, and Germany. The trajectories on which my analysis is based represent a means of capturing the most concrete aspects of these academic circulations – such as the everyday production of networks, bodies and emotions, narratives and representations, political commitments, and mobility and precarity – as well as the institutional dynamics that are associated with it. More specifically, this thesis reflects upon the social construction of these circulations (social origin, education, familial projects), the construction of subjectivities in a context of intense geographical and cultural mobility, in addition to the institutional and epistemic transformations associated with these circulations
