Doctoral students' laboratory

The "DocHéritages" laboratory brings together the doctoral students in the three Héritages research areas.

Drawn up in consultation with DocHéritages representatives, you will find below an information booklet (in French) for Héritages doctoral students. We invite you to take a look at it, as it contains a great deal of useful information (how Héritages works, contacts, professional life, documentary resources, etc.).

(supplemented by useful resources for doctoral students in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences doctoral school - EDAHSS)

This doctoral students’ laboratory enables you to discuss your work in a friendly and interdisciplinary setting and create new synergies that enrich the respective research. It is also intended to promote the dissemination of your research outside of the laboratory. 

To do this, you have a research blog on the Hypotheses platform, which is a space for exchange, publication and promotion of your laboratory's activities.

In this blog, doctoral students and young researchers will publish information about scientific and cultural events in their laboratory, present their work through interviews and share useful resources, in a process of professionalizing support. They will also publish articles, reviews, and the results of their scientific meetings.
