Rémi Astruc conducts his research alongside the international and interdisciplinary network “CCC” https://communautedeschercheurssurlacommunaute.wordpress.com, which focuses on the notion of “Community” in philosophy, politics, creation and performance studies, and the social sciences. This research has lead to the publication of two new works in 2016: a book-length essay entitled Nous? l’aspiration à la communauté et les arts (featuring an afterword by Jean-Luc Nancy) as well as La Communauté revisitée/Community Redux (foreword by Yves Citton). Both books explore the actuality of the notion of Community in contemporary thinking as it relates to the issues that define our present, ultimately seeking to understand what can still bring us together in societies where the answer to this question remains largely unclear.
