Yves Winkin researcher profile

Yves Winkin

Yves Winkin is Director of Scientific and Technical Culture at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers [National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts] in Paris, and of the Musée des Arts et Métiers [Museum of Arts and Crafts], part of CNAM. In 2013, he served as liaison between the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENSL) and the new Musée des Confluences of Lyon, in charge of interdisciplinary projects. From January 2011 to September 2012, he was Director of the Institut Français de l’Éducation [French Institute of Education], a national agency embedded into the ENSL since 1/1/11. From 2006 to 2010, he was Deputy Director for Research and International Relations of ENSL; previously he was Professor of Anthropology and Communication at ENSL.

Winkin established the contours in France of an anthropological approach to face-to- face communication; the discipline he helped to define is the anthropology of communication. He offered an appropriate theoretical framework; he made explicit the ethnographic methodology and suggested areas of investigation. His own research focuses on interactions in urban settings, especially interactions between pedestrians and other urban dwellers.
