Towards an anthropology of consultation modes

This seminar will focus on consultation as a mode of action that brings together the two terms of a relationship: on the one hand, the person who holds specialized skills, recognized as legitimate and useful, and who provides services, usually paid, in the name of these skills; on the other hand, the person who benefits from a service in a more or less direct interaction with the specialist. This dyadic relationship does not exclude the intervention of other actors who may in turn be consulted in order to contribute to the decision-making process. It will therefore be necessary to examine all of the relationships involved upstream, during and downstream of the consultation.

Tuesdays, from 3 to 5 p.m. from March 2 to June 8, 2021.
