Les vidéos

Videos have become a new tool available to the CIERA community of researchers. Hosted on the CIERA YouTube channel, they allow research work, themes and publications, etc. to be promoted in another way and to a different public.

INSTANTANÉS (SNAPSHOTS)

This is the name given to the short video series launched in April 2020. These videos allow researchers in the CIERA community to express themselves. The series was initially designed to shed light on topics emerging out of public debate, linked to questions concerning the Covid-19 pandemic. It is now open to all topics. The goal? To communicate Franco-German research in the humanities and social sciences to a broader audience.

Travaux du CIERA

In collaboration with the publishers of member institutions and other partners, notably the Septentrion University Press [LINK], CIERA contributes to the publication of books drawn from the various scientific events it supports, including: study days, training-research programmes, and junior conferences.

Dialogiques

Dialogiques is a collection created by CIERA and included in the collection “Bibliothèque allemande” of the éditions Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme. It hosts monographs and collective works on German and Franco-German lands, within an open horizon to Europe and the world beyond Europe.

The collection aims to focus on comparative approaches, while showing, through the analysis of transfers and cross-cutting studies, the logic of interdependence that shapes national groupings in Europe.

By considering both the historical dimension of its objects and their insertion into current affairs, Dialogiques aims to be a laboratory of the diversity of areas and approaches. It seeks to stimulate thinking on the contributions of the humanities and social sciences to the understanding of the world of today.

The collection also hosts books drawn from PhDs awarded with the Michael Werner prize

Networks and Partners

CIERA IS A NETWORK OF NETWORKS IN FRANCE, GERMANY AND BEYOND

Thanks to a wide network of partner institutions, CIERA’s actions are developing in France, Germany and around the world.

CIERA also brings together more than 2,500 members, who are researchers, teacher-researchers, PhD and other students working in connection with German-speaking areas in all the disciplines of humanities and social sciences. They are mainly based in France and Germany.

With 12 member establishments located in Ile-de-France, as well as France’s Rhone-Alpes and Grand Est regions, but also a network of DAAD centres associated throughout the world and partners in France and Germany, the CIERA network is present in a large part of the world.

12 MEMBER INSTITUTIONS: 3 CLUSTERS

The CIERA is the result of the synergy of the organisations that make up it. These are12 of the most prestigious French institutions in higher education and research, distributed across the Ile-de-France, the Rhone-Alpes Auvergne and the Grand-Est regions:

ILE-DE-FRANCE CLUSTER

  • CY Cergy Paris University
  • École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS)
  • École normale supérieure (ENS)
  • Fondation Maison des Sciences de l'Homme (FMSH)
  • Sciences Po
  • Sorbonne Université
  • Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne

THE RHÔNE-ALPES CLUSTER

  • Sciences Po Grenoble
  • Université Lumière Lyon 2
  • École normale supérieure de Lyon (ENS de Lyon)

THE GRAND EST CLUSTER

  • Université de Lorraine
  • Université de Strasbourg

Thanks to the CIERA network, these member institutions pool their resources to strengthen their training and research potential concerning Germany. This cooperation strategy also enables them to build new partnerships. The creation of a GermanoPole within the Grand Est region and the “Schwerpunkt Deutschland” seminar piloted by from the Rhone-Alpes cluster are two very good examples.

These institutions also benefit from privileged access to certain funding offers, such as training-research programmes.

20 GERMAN AND EUROPEAN STUDY CENTERS: INTERNATIONALISATION NETWORK

CIERA is integrated into DAAD’s network of German and European studies centres around the world. This function gives it a privileged place to internationalise its partnerships.

Researchers registered with CIERA have special access to the programmes proposed by the DAAD centres and have access to major opportunities to enhance their work internationally.
