Andrea Pinotti is elected president of the new Scientific Council of the FMSH
Aesthetics teacher, Andrea Pinotti was elected President of the Scientific Council of the FMSH on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, during the installation session of the completely renewed council. He will be assisted by Anne Lehoërff, university professor in archeology, and Sylvie Rollet, university professor emeritus in film studies, both elected vice-presidents.
Composed of 12 members, the scientific council will give its opinion on scientific and international policy and consolidate its orientations. It will also make proposals and recommendations regarding the initiatives and projects implemented.
"I am honored and happy to act as President of the Scientific Council of the FMSH, and grateful to fellow members of this Council for their trust. I am aware, on one hand, of the prestigious tradition of the FMSH and on the other hand, of the challenges - scientific and methodological - that await the human and social sciences in their relationship with the hard sciences, data science, cognitive science and new technologies. And also the pressing political challenges launched by the contemporary international scenario, which requires us to find appropriate interpretative tools for the new "polis", the common space we inhabit. The Scientific Council, in consultation with the Management Board, will undertake to give the necessary impetus to the development of the scientific and international policy of the FMSH while respecting the plurality of human and social sciences.”, declares Andrea Pinotti, President of the Scientific Council.
