index - Pouvoirs, Lettres, Normes Access content directly


This collection presents the publications of the researchers belonging to the research unit POLEN - Pouvoirs, Lettres, Normes since 2012, year of the creation of this research unit.

POLEN is a research unit of the University of Orléans (EA 4710) directed by Philippe Haugeard. This research unit arose in 2012 from the research units META - Centre de recherche sur les littératures et les civilisations (EA 4230) and SAVOURS - Savoirs et pouvoirs de l'Antiquité à nos jours (EA 3272). POLEN's overall research project concerns the issues of power and authority in their different guises and forms (political power, religious authority, social practices, cultural, literary and artistic models, legal frameworks and judicial norms, etc.). It also adresses their different modes of expression, representation and diffusion (texts, images and all forms of symbolic and artistic production). These topics raise a contrario questions of contestation, subversion and marginality.

POLEN is a pluridisciplinary research unit which gathers researchers from the fields of literature, history, history of law, civilization, linguistics and anthropology. They belong to three thematic research groups.
