    [fre] Ce texte propose de rendre compte d'une conférence pluridisciplinaire en prenant comme angle d'approche les échanges concrets entre économie et sciences sociales. Les définitions institutionnelles des disciplines, pour opératoires qu'elles soient, ne préjugent en rien du contenu effectif des recherches inscrites sous leurs étiquettes. En effet, les évolutions internes des disciplines concernées, notamment du fait du développement de la sociologie économique, ont conduit à des décloisonnements quant aux objets de recherche, mais aussi aux modes d'interprétation des comportements. La clarification de ces évolutions est nécessaire pour aborder l'étude des zones de contact entre économie et sciences sociales. Lorsqu'une discipline s'empare d'un objet ou de concepts nouveaux, se posent en effet des questions sur les transferts et les emprunts qu'elle fait à la discipline de départ. Ces emprunts, plus ou moins respectueux du sens initial des concepts, peuvent conduire à des malentendus dans le dialogue entre économie et sciences sociales. [eng] Disciplinary decompartmentalization - transfers and misunderstandings -This text gives an account of an interdisciplinary conference, highlighting actual exchanges between economics and social sciences. Institutionnal definitions of the disciplines, though they are operating, do not allow to foresee the contents of the researchs conducted under their labels. Internal evolutions of the disciplines, notably due to the development of the New Economic Sociology, have entailed decompartmentalizations concerning research objects, but also ways to interprète the practices and behaviours. A clarification of those evolutions is necessary to broach the study of contacts between economics and social sciences. When a discipline tackles new objects or concepts, questions arise on transferts and borrowings from the departure discipline. Those borrowings, more or less respectful of the initial concepts, can lead to misunderstandings in the dialogue between economics and social sciences.
