LIPE, Europe, from the laboratory to the classroom

A laboratory for innovative teaching about Europe.

This project was selected in the 2016 call for innovative projects and was supported by the European Idea Factory until 2020.

The Laboratory for innovative teaching about Europe (LIPE) aims to create a digital platform bringing together innovative educational resources about Europe, produced by national and international research programmes. This multidisciplinary tool includes resources in French and English. It is initially aimed at French secondary school pupils, students and teachers. Later on, it could also target primary school pupils.

The educational resources can take the following forms: teaching sheets with examples of student productions, documentary files, videos and webdocumentaries, audio sources and radio broadcasts, MOOC, serious games, animated maps, iconographic resources and any other innovative form. LIPE will eventually provide support services to research programmes to assist them in the design of teaching resources. It will be autonomous, and will host other resources from research programmes by being known and identified by the academic and educational community.

Labex EHNE – Writing a new history of Europe

Labex EHNE – Writing a new history of Europe

Reinserting the history of the European project and its implementation into general history implies a renewed writing of the history of Europe itself. This perspective is the foundation of the EHNE project, “Writing a new history of Europe”, approved by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research in a press release dated 14 February 2012, as one of the 71 winners of the second wave of the “Laboratories of Excellence” (LabEx) call for projects, with the mention “Investments in the future”.

The main objective of the EHNE project is to shed light on the current crisis in Europe by reconstructing a new historiography of Europe that is aimed at the scientific world as well as the teaching world, citizens and politicians.

Its ambition is to situate French historians of Europe and international relations at the heart of the main historiographical and contemporary debates. The project, which is to run for eight years, brings together the most notable French specialists on these issues, within powerful European and international networks. It is carried out by five partner laboratories from three institutions (Paris IV, Paris 1, Nantes).

STARACO

STARACO

The STARACO project means to engage in a four-year historical reflection on the question of differences in status and colour, on the historical construction of “races” and the hierarchies that have resulted from them. The theme of the construction of racial hierarchies in the Atlantic experience will be a way of rethinking both the history of relations between Europe and “Southern” peoples and the emergence of colour or “race” prejudice whose effects can still be felt in European societies.

The Loire region, the University of Nantes, the CRHIA and the Casa de Velázquez are the main partners in the STARACO project.
