The Presentation of the Everyday Revolution

I participated last october in an international seminar tackling the issue of “events” in social sciences organized in the University of Lausanne by the Department of Religion Studies. During that seminar, I gave a talk (in french, the video is available here) presenting some remarks and observation I already had suggested in a paper published in the French review of political sciences, titled “The roads to Revolution” (available here, still in french, sorry!). The talk is entitled, in reference to the seminal book by Erwing Goffman, The Presentation of Everyday Revolution (which, I have to admit, sounds better in french : “la mise en scène de la révolution quotidienne”). Hope you find it interesting.
