École Normale Supérieure
The prestigious École Normale Supérieure, or ENS Paris, located in Paris’s Latin Quarter hosts research in a number of humanistic fields including:
- Archeology and the science of texts
- History of the medieval
- Modern and contemporary worlds
- French and comparative literature
- Critical theory
- Sciences of contemporary societies: sociology, economics, political science, law and geography
Northwestern’s strong relationship with ENS Paris has flourished recently with the establishment of the Tri-University Dissertation Workshop. This multi-year series of workshops between Northwestern, ENS Paris and Goethe University in Frankfurt provides a space for Northwestern graduate students in the critical theory cluster to connect with peers working in related fields in Europe.
In addition to benefiting from the rich network of friends and collaborators at ENS Paris, Northwestern graduate students and faculty members may make the most of libraries and archives through enrollment in a dual PhD or a graduate exchange.
