The Notebook of the Nationalism Working Group at the European University Institute
Benoit Vaillot | HEC
I am a PhD Researcher in History at the European University Institute (Florence, Italy) and at the University of Strasbourg (Strasbourg, France). 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 am dealing with the construction of sovereignty and national identities from below, in a transnational perspective.
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.
