The Sciences Po Centre for History

The Sciences Po Centre for History was founded in 1984 and brings together all research and teaching in history at Sciences Po, doctoral studies included. The CHSP is primarily concerned with political history, understood in the broadest sense and approached from a transnational and comparative perspective.

The CHSP has implemented several changes in recent years. We have increased and internationalised our staff, broadened our fields of research on a European and global scale, extended our chronological range back to the early modern period, and stepped up multidisciplinary collaboration. We have fully integrated our PhD students into our research activities, placed greater emphasis on their professional training, and regularly host post-doctoral fellows and visiting researchers.

At the CHSP, research and teaching are closely linked and geared towards a multidisciplinary, international outlook. We have 26 permanent faculty members, 50 PhD students, several post-doctoral fellows and 32 affiliated researchers, accompanied by a research support team.

We maintain several partnerships for academic collaboration with research centres, networks, and associations at the international level, such as with the London School of Economics and King’s College. The CHSP is active in the CIVICA network, established in 2019 by several major European universities including Sciences Po.
