Digital Humanities Projects - Competition

The competition, organized and funded by the Association Française d’Histoire Économique (AFHE) under the patronage of the IEHA, is open to all researchers and institutions.
A special session will give the opportunity for each selected candidate or team to present their project during 15min presentation on their project. Furthermore, candidates will have the opportunity to display their projects on a large video screen in the Grand Équipement Documentaire on Campus Condorcet
