A recent workshop on "Family name between socio-cultural feature and genetic metaphor - From concepts to methods" was held in Paris on the 9th and 10th December 2010, partly sponsored by the Social Science and Humanity Institute (CNRS), and by Human Biology. This workshop was intended to facilitate exchanges on recent questions related to the names of persons and to confront different multidisciplinary approaches in a field of investigation where geneticists and historians, geographers, sociologists and ethnologists have all an active part. Here are the abstracts of some contributions.
