Research at the internationally-recognized Parisian institution École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales, or the EHESS, encompasses: history, sociology, anthropology, economics, geography, archeology, psychology and linguistics

The focus on interdisciplinarity across fields, as well as the EHESS’s connections with other Parisian institutions, allows a good deal of flexibility for Northwestern faculty exchanges and students in the dual PhD program. There are particularly strong and ongoing collaborations with scholars in Northwestern’s Department of Sociology and Program in African Studies.
