Jean-Yves AGARD


Within the field of "Creative Industries", Jean-Yves AGARD specializes in diversity management, identity, culture and professional socialization within the organizations. Along with his socio-anthropological academic background, his fields of research, according to qualitative ethnographical approaches, led him to question:

• The links between the cultural identity mobilization, questioning in particular the role of idioms in the social cohesion (feeling of belongings) and the attractiveness of regions (i.e. The Périgord territory in the Aquitaine Region- Territory storytelling).

• The encounter of otherness in the workplace by observing the professional socialization of individuals either in the framework of a domestic or international mobility. Furthermore, he analyses their adaptation capacity in their new cultural environments and the acculturation process. Thus he has specifically studied the expatriates' socialization and the carriers and trajectories of artists.
