CESH 2017 — STRASBOURG — 7–9 décembre

Early Career Researchers Symposium
6 december 2017

Symposium objectives

The idea to organize a symposium of young European researchers in the history of sport arose from the desire to create an event bringing together doctoral students and young doctors in history, and to develop scientific relations across national borders. Supported be CESH, and coordinated by two doctoral students from the research centres ARCHE (EA 3400) and E3S (EA 1342), this event fits with the ambitions of the local Doctoral Training Programme “Sciences humaines et sociales” (Ecole doctorale 519) that intends to enhance European perspectives of research. This symposium intends to allow young researchers to share their experiences and research methods.

Focusing on transnational studies, this symposium will be devoted initially to scientific exchanges during two round tables, and eventually on the education of PhD students and recent PhDs by the holding of specific presentations. The main objective of the round tables is to share and compare a set of methodological ways of thinking to build a transnational history, in a first time, about a variety of cultural objects, and in a second time, with a focus on sporting issue. During the workshop, different methods of analysis will be described and the focus will be on exchange between various researchers, and on the historical sources and their interpretations.
Finally, the Symposium will conclude with the organization of a presentation led by Daphné Bolz and Grégory Quin. The objective of which it is to provide information to the young researchers and their intended research missions abroad, or to collaborate in cross-border scientific activities.
