Invitation - September 11-12, 2023: From his encounter with Fernand Braudel in the early 1970s until his definitive departure in early 2018, Immanuel Wallerstein had chosen Paris and the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l'Homme as the European hub of an ambitious project aimed at considering, on a global scale and within their context and dynamics spanning half a millennium of history, all the major problems of our contemporary societies. Organized in partnership with the Calouste Gulbenkian Fondation, the Association of the Friends of FMSH, and the Institut Universitaire de France as part of the Foundation's 60th anniversary, the conference "Capitalism, Anticapitalism, and Engaged Social Sciences on a Global Scale: Exploring the Work of Immanuel Wallerstein" aims to assess the journey of over half a century and highlight its relevance and current significance in the face of challenges, uncertainties, and unknowns of the present and the future.
