The North Americanist team
CENA is both a teaching and research center and a facility for graduate and postgraduate students. At present, it includes approximately ten professors and researchers from EHESS, CNRS, and various universities; more than fifteen Ph.D. students; and many associate members who regularly collaborate through the team’s research programs and conferences. Thanks to the very important EHESS program of invitations to foreign visitors, CENA hosts one or more visiting professors of North American studies every year.
Full and associate members of CENA form a national and international network of professors, researchers, and graduate students who actively participate in North Americanist scientific organizations and professional associations in Europe and in North America, including the Fulbright Commission; the Institute of the Americas, correspondents of the Organization of American Historians and the Journal of American Historyin the U.S.A. and the Revue d’histoire de l’Amérique françaisein Canada.
The scientific development and professional training of graduate students constitutes one of CENA’s top priorities. Graduate students are systematically included in all its research activities. Thanks to CENA’s networks they are also encouraged to participate in both European and North American academic life. Most of its graduate students receive research grants, such as those offered by the Fulbright Commission or the Lurcy Trust, that allow them to undertake long periods of research in the U.S.A. or in Canada.
