Archive collections

Workshops on the Archives and the History of Sciences Po

The workshops about the Center’s archives and the history of Sciences Po were created to allow researchers studying the history of Sciences Po or similar topics, archivists who organized the archive collections, those who helped compile these collections as well as everyone who is interested in the history of Sciences Po to meet one another.

Our objective is to study the memory of the school, notably from such collections as those of L’Ecole libre des sciences politiques, André Siegfried, Jacques Chaspal, Jean Touchard, François Goguel, Serge Hurtig, Claude Jourdan, Jean-Pierre Millot, etc. and to contribute to the writing of the institution’s history.

Person in charge of the worksh: Dominique Parcollet, in charge of the Contemporary History Archives
