Abstract : Following a long tradition that studies “great” authors and their master pieces, research in the history of ideas has had the tendency to privilege individualist approaches on this subject. But taking into account the interactions that took place in the spaces, such as seminars, where these intellectuals elaborated and diffused their ideas allows us to see a more collective dimension in the elaboration and transmission of these ideas. This presentation will address the roleplayed by such collective dimension using the case of seminars led by the faculty in the history departmentat the university of Vincennes-Paris 8 during the 1970s. In this historical context characterized by strong politicization, a fortiori in this “experimental” university invested by many “leftists” and critical thinkers, the history department was conceived for, and dedicated to, the teaching of the history of the working-class movement and the study of the ideas that nurtured it. The goal is to study these collective forms of teaching as both intellectual and political contributions to the history of political thought. Using archival material, a collective biography of the teachers, as well as statistical data on the students, and first and second hand testimonies, I will show how this system of seminars appears as a space of collective production of critical political thought and of its transmission to a particular student population.
