Call for papers: The EHNE Encyclopedia is looking for new authors

The EHNE Encyclopedia is looking for new authors:

The Encyclopedia for a New History of Europe is looking for new authors to enrich the entries of its various thematic subjects:

  • Europe as material civilization
  • Europe within a political epistemology
  • European humanism
  • Europe, Europeans, and the world
  • The Europe of wars and the traces of war
  • A gendered history of Europe
  • National traditions, circulations, and identities in European art

The short entries (7,000 characters) should be intended for a general public and offer a new reflection on European history. They will be translated into English (and into German in the mid-term), and could also be used for pedagogical and academic purposes in connection with our different partnerships (Maisons de l’Europe, Toute l’Europe, Laboratoire d’Innovation Pédagogique sur l’Europe).
