A critical approach to the concept of culture

Abstract : Recent research in anthropology, social sciences and feminist studies has shown the practical and theoretical limits of the concept of culture, especially in the case of the old debate between relativism and universalism. Indeed, the political and economic impact of culturalism has been understated and is now being criticized by an expanding number of scholars. The aim of the talk is to expose the links between these limits, and the fact that the very concept of culture may become avoidable altogether in social sciences.
