Welcome to the H-France Website.


News and Announcements

H-France is proud to announce its latest Salon, featuring a discussion about the work of Thomas Piketty. There are essays from five scholars, and an interview (video) with Piketty himself. The Salon can be found here.


We have a new Fiction and Film for French Historians available. Jalil Lespert's controversial Yves Saint Laurent, Bertrand Bonello's nonlinear Saint-Laurent, and Jan Cleijne's Legends of the Tour (on the first century of the Tour de France) all get well-deserved attention. Finally, in "Classics in the Classroom" FFFH's own Liana Vardi discusses Pierre Michon's Les Onze (translated as The Eleven) and its representation of the Terror.


From the latest New Books in French Studies: Nicolas Kenny‘s The Feel of the City: Experiences of Urban Transformation, which explores the sensory histories and urban development of Montreal and Brussels from the 1880s to 1914.


Meanwhile, the latest H-France Forum features four essays on Marisa Linton's Choosing Terror. Virtue, Friendship, and Authenticity in the French Revolution. As always, the forum concludes with a response from the author.
