EHESS Exchange (Closed)

Applications are invited for an exchange of academic staff with the École des hautes études en sciences socialies (EHESS / School for Advanced Study in the Social Sciences) in Paris to take place during the 2021/2022 academic year.  All academic staff in FAHSS are eligible for this scheme. 

The EHESS is the premier French research institution in the human sciences, covering not only the social sciences but much of what is considered to be ‘arts and humanities’ in Ireland.  A graduate-only research institution, EHESS has been the home institution for many of the leading French scholars of recent times such as Pierre Bourdieu, Jacques Derrida, Francois Furet, Claude Levi-Strauss, and Thomas Picketty.

As part of this exchange, Trinity will send one academic staff member to the EHESS for a period of four weeks.  EHESS will provide a stipend of €3700 to the visitor (for a four-week visit) to be used for travel and accommodation and will provide an office space.  The visiting faculty member will be assigned an academic unit and institutional mentor and will be obligated to deliver a series of four lectures and partake in the intellectual culture of the EHESS. The stays will take place during the university year (November to June).

To apply for a visit during the 2021/2022 academic year, applicants should submit the following to artshss@tcd.ie by noon on 28 February 2022:

  • CV (no more than 3 pages)
  • Description of four lectures to be given at EHESS (500 words total)
  • Project outline to include a description of why their research will benefit from a visit to the EHESS and which academic units and individuals they intend to collaborate with while there (500 words)

Queries about the scheme can be directed to Dr Daniel Geary (gearyd@tcd.ie).
