At the UMR Éducation et politiques (Lyon) he became interested in political rhetoric in education (especially with his Figures de l'égalité: Deux siècles de rhétoriques politiques en éducation, Brussels, Bruylant, 2010), and later in the democratization of teaching (Problèmes de l’école démocratique : xviiie-xxe siècles, Paris, CNRS, 2013). He is continuing his research on the political aspects of education in the era of globalization (L’éducation informelle contre la forme scolaire ?, Carrefours de l’Éducation, no. 45, June 2018).
