Benoit Vaillot | HEC

I am a PhD Researcher in History at the EHESS (Paris, France) / ARCHE EA 3400, University of Strasbourg (Strasbourg, France), and at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy). My research focuses on the French-German border between 1871 and 1914, when the border was moved after the German annexation of Alsace-Lorraine.

I taught Modern History and Humanities in License degree at the University of Lyon from 2013 to 2016, and History and Geography in high school from 2014 to 2016. I graduated in Modern History from the University of Lyon, and in Political Sciences from Sciences Po Lyon.

Since 2017, I am the coordinator of the Nationalism Working Group at the European University Institute. I also propose online ressources for German palaeography of the 19th and 20th centuries.
