Biografie (woord)

Grégoire Mallard is Associate Professor of Anthropology and Sociology at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva. He is the author of Fallout: Nuclear Diplomacy in an Age of Global Fracture (2014) and co-editor of Contractual Knowledge: One Hundred Years of Legal Experimentation in Global Markets (Cambridge, 2016). His publications focus on prediction, knowledge and ignorance in global governance.


'Grégoire Mallard offers an extraordinary exploration of the ongoing relevance of Mauss's The Gift both to scholarship and, above all, to political life, during the mid-twentieth century. Mallard tracks Mauss's concepts and influence through the creation of new interdependences, the re-emergence of attention to the local, and the creation of new trade conventions. He includes themes that English-speaking readers may know very little about due to the centrality of French post-colonial life, such as the ongoing relations of France and Algeria. A remarkably original resource and inspiration.' Jane I. Guyer, The Johns Hopkins University
