Résumé :

The Annual Graduate Conference on the History of European Integration is a joint initiative between the Alcide De Gasperi Research Centre at the EUI and the two European associations of young researchers, RICHIE (Réseau international de jeunes chercheurs en histoire de l’intégration européenne) and HEIRS (History of European integration research society). The conference is organised with the support of the Department of History and Civilization and the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies. After a very successful first conference in September 2017, the second Annual Graduate Conference will be held at the European University Institute in Florence on 10-11 September 2018. The conference is a unique setting for PhD students and early career researchers to discuss ongoing research related to the history of European integration. The conference consists of panel sessions focused on submitted research papers, as well as debates on historiographical and methodological approaches.The aim of the conference is to provide an informal atmosphere in which new ideas and research directions, as well as advice on publishing and academic careers can be shared and debated.
