Monolingualism and creativity: Scientific discourse and linguistic diversity in human and social sciences

Monolinguisme et créativité: Discours scientifique et diversité linguistique dans les sciences humaines et sociales

Abstract

Whether or not monolingualism – academic English, in practice – is favourable for the production of knowledge in human and social sciences is now called into question. In order to further their careers, researchers seek to publicise their work by publishing in the most prestigious, best-known international journals. But we must not ignore the limits set by the operation of these journals on the production of innovative knowledge to challenge our intellectual routines. We can support the idea that creativity in social and human sciences benefits more from preserving a plurality of scientific production spaces than from a single homogeneous space, which usually tends to fall into complacency.
