De bonnes raisons pour se faire des cheveux

Xavier BernierOlivier Lazzarotti et Jacques Lévy | 30.04.2021

Human hairs are easy to lay out and are strongly mobilised in the social presentation of selves. They have their own language, including synonyms, homonyms, and oxymorons.

It seriously deals with contemporary concerns, yet it does not resort to [...]
