The French History Network (FHN) was launched in 2013 as a way of bringing together doctoral and post-doctoral researchers, and also of generating intellectual collaborations. It started with a small series of events and projects before becoming, first and foremost, a blog collaboration with the Society for the Study of French history and the IHR Modern French History seminar in London.
The blog, managed principally by Ludivine Broch (Westminster), Alison Carrol (Brunel) and Andrew Smith (Chichester), has hugely benefited from the ideas and work of doctoral, post-doctoral and early-career researchers, in particular Ellen Crabtree (Durham), Charlotte Faucher (Manchester), Will Pooley (Bristol), Chris Millington (Liverpool) and Will Rispin (Warwick). By carving out a space which promotes the work of young scholars and encourages transnational exchanges, the FHN still aims to support doctoral and post-doctoral researchers who are entering a difficult job market, navigating personal and professional concerns and also looking to diffuse new research projects, ideas and practices in French history.
