Alice Lasvergnas

Alice Lasvergnas is a Ph.D. candidate in political theory at Sciences Po Paris. She specializes in democratic theory, the history of ideas, the philosophy of social science and the sociology of quantification. Her main topic of interest is the redefinition of democratic participation in mass societies.

Her research currently investigates the influence of methodological debates in American political science in the 1940s on the redefinition of democratic ideals in the 1960s. Her goal is to contrast different approaches of individual action based on scientific practices to then confront early definitions of participatory democracy.

Ms Lasvergnas holds a Master’s degree in political theory from Sciences Po Paris and a Bachelor’s degree in philosophy and history.
