    Towards a Sociology of Translation: Book Translations as a Cultural World-System.Johan Heilbron - 1999 - European Journal of Social Theory 2 (4):429-444.
    This article argues that the translation of books may be fruitfully understood as constituting a cultural world-system. The working of this system, based on a core-periphery structure, accounts for the uneven flows of translations between language groups as well as for the varying role of translations within language groups. The final part outlines how this general sociological model may be further developed.

    Mixed methods research: what it is and what it could be.Rob Timans, Paul Wouters & Johan Heilbron - 2019 - Theory and Society 48 (2):193-216.
    Combining methods in social scientific research has recently gained momentum through a research strand called Mixed Methods Research. This approach, which explicitly aims to offer a framework for combining methods, has rapidly spread through the social and behavioural sciences, and this article offers an analysis of the approach from a field theoretical perspective. After a brief outline of the MMR program, we ask how its recent rise can be understood. We then delve deeper into some of the specific elements that (...)

    Au lieu de chercher aveuglement une sterile unite scientifique, aussi oppressive que chimerique, dans la vicieuse reduction de tous les phenomenes a un seul ordre de lois, l'esprit humain regardera finalement les diverses classes d'evenements comme ayant leurs lois speciales.

    Young Durkheimians and the temptation of fascism.Mathieu Hikaru Desan & Johan Heilbron - 2015 - History of the Human Sciences 28 (3):22-50.
    In this article we assess the general claim that Durkheimian sociology has reactionary, fascist, or totalitarian affinities, and the specific claim that Marcel Déat’s Durkheimian background was a significant factor in his becoming a Nazi sympathizer. We do so by comparing the different trajectories of the interwar generation of young Durkheimians and find that only one, i.e. Déat, can be said to have become fascist. Indeed, what characterizes this generation of Durkheimians is the variety of the ways in which they (...)

    The origins and early diffusion of “shareholder value” in the United States.Johan Heilbron, Jochem Verheul & Sander Quak - 2014 - Theory and Society 43 (1):1-22.
    The shareholder value conception of the firm and its consequences for the functioning of corporations have been studied from a variety of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. In this article we examine in more detail than has been done sofar the origins and early adoption of this particular conception. By investigating public business sources from the perspective of field theory, we argue that the rise and early diffusion of “shareholder value” are best understood as a function of the changing power relations (...)

    Sociology and positivism in 19th-century France: the vicissitudes of the Société de Sociologie (1872—4).Johan Heilbron - 2009 - History of the Human Sciences 22 (4):30-62.
    Little is known about the world’s first sociological society, Émile Littré’s Société de Sociologie (1872—4). This article, based on prosopographic research, offers an interpretation of the foundation, political-intellectual orientation and early demise of the society. As indicated by recruitment and texts by its founding members, the Société de Sociologie was in fact conceived more as a political club than a learned society. Guided in this by Littré’s heterodox positivism and the redefinition of sociology he proposed around 1870, the Société de (...)

    The Globalization of European Research in the Social Sciences and Humanities : A Bibliometric Study.Johan Heilbron & Yves Gingras - 2018 - In Johan Heilbron, Gustavo Sorá & Thibaud Boncourt (eds.), The Social and Human Sciences in Global Power Relations. Cham: Springer Verlag. pp. 29-58.
    On the basis of bibliometric data, this chapter shows that international collaboration in the social sciences and humanities has increased strongly between 1980 and 2014, but that the pattern of exchange has known few structural changes. At the basic level of production capacity and article output, the global field of the SSH is best described as a Euro-American duopoly. At the higher level of co-authorships and citations, however, the field structure tends to be monopolistic: no language can compete with English, (...)
