  • Eleni Varikas (Paris 8), Emeritus Professor of Political Science at Paris 8 University, is one of the introducers of the concept of gender in France. By refining it as early as the 1990s on what she calls “gender consciousness”, she has endeavored to renew its historiography by insisting on the epistemological issues of notions of consciousness or lived experience as boundaries of politics.
