Collaboration for a top-tier programme

The scientific programme of EMMEH 2024 will be operated by two most renowned research laboratories in the fields of cultural heritage:

The Institute for Historical Research of Septentrion (IRHiS, 135 members) and the History, Archaeology and Literature of the Ancient Worlds Laboratory (HALMA, 220 members) — both hosted by the University of Lille.

IRHiS carries out high-level scientific research in the fields of history, archaeology (medieval, modern and contemporary), as well as art history and visual studies. Composed of historians, art historians and archaeologists, this laboratory is structured around three axes: creative processes and practices of knowledge; powers, norms and conflicts; materialities/imaterialities.

HALMA closely associates archaeologists, historians, philologists and specialists of ancient cultures. Its research extends from prehistory to the latest Antiquity and covers the Mediterranean basin and Northern Europe, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Middle East. Its international influence is based on numerous collaborations with French scientific institutions abroad, on an extensive network of European and North American partner universities, as well as on an excellent integration into the regional archaeology, heritage, and culture community.

These parnerships and experiences will benefit the EMMEH 2024 summer school.
