Bienvenue to the blog of the Association for the Study of Modern and Contemporary France and its journal, Modern and Contemporary France! We hope you will enjoy this more informal space to read about our latest activities and initiatives.

The aim of the Association is ‘to advance and develop research and education concerning modern and contemporary France’, c. 1789 to the present day, so we’re delighted to showcase:

  • current research projects and publications – from history to politics, history of art to literature, cinema to cartoons, sport to labour laws, in France and abroad, not to mention a lot in between;
  • support for current and future generations of researchers, including a bustling postgraduate scene;
  • outreach initiatives fostering collaboration between schools and universities.

Bonne lecture!
