ENS de Lyon
École Normale Supérieure de Lyon
Research carried out at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, or the ENS de Lyon, covers fields of exact sciences, social sciences and the humanities.
Northwestern’s collaboration with the institution based in the city of Lyon began with a focus on medieval and early modern studies; this initial concentration has since expanded. Today, graduate and faculty exchanges are loosely organized under the interdisciplinary umbrella of literature, theory and philosophy.
This rubric has allowed participation in several of the ENS de Lyon’s research groups including:
- Institut d’Histoire des Représentations et des Idées dans les Modernités (IRHIM): brings together a group of leading scholars in the history of ideas and representations
- CIHAM: studies the history, archaeology and literature of medieval Christianity and Islam
- Triangle: specializes in politics and political thought
- Centre d’Etudes et de Recherches Comparées sur la Création (CERCC): works primarily on 20th-century and contemporary literature and arts
