 Dédoublement. A historical and historiographical figure in the history of the human sciences

A workshop in honour of Jacqueline Carroy

 

In this workshop, we investigate what the figure of dédoublement has meant for the history of psychology and the history of the human sciences more broadly. Dédoublement is perhaps best understood as a mixture of doubling and splitting, of asserting the multiple within the one, and may be translated as ‘multiplication’. We aim to study dédoublement as a historical category, but also as a figure that inspires new historiographical approaches.

Beginning in the early 1980s, Jacqueline Carroy studied dédoublement de la personnalité as an important historical category in the making of the new psychological sciences. She extended this category from its sole application in the diagnosis of patients to a historiographical diagnostic category that helped to understand the multiple roles of historical actors. In particular, she focused on important pairings – doubles or multiples – in the history of psychology: the subject and the psychologist, the waking and the dreaming subject, the scientific psychologist and the literary author or écrivain-sujet.

In her work and teaching, Carroy has also called special attention to the need for our historiographical work itself to become multiple. Taking this cue, we will explore how we – as historians – could perform historiographically revealing dédoublements. In this way, we will reflect on the recent history and the futures of the history of the human sciences.

The workshop will include papers and discussion panels on:
- Dédoublement as a historical concept
- Dédoublement as historiographical figure: dédoubler the objects and actors in the history of the human sciences
- History of the human sciences: Histoires croisées – Histoires dédoublées?
