H-France is a scholarly organization promoting the study of French and Francophone history and culture online.  Since its origins in 1991, H-France has grown into a central source of scholarly information and publications related to French history, literature, art history, musicology, film studies, and philosophy.  Publishing five open access journals and supporting a discussion list, a Scholars Registry, and a website, the H-France Editorial Team is composed of a large group of volunteers whose efforts are the heart and soul of its operations.

Resources for Teaching Courses Online

As many faculty are having to transfer their courses mid-semester to an online environment, H-France has begun collecting resources that may assist faculty in doing so.  We hope to keep enriching this collection so please check back as you have need.  If you have resources that might be of use to others,please send them to H-France Editor-in-Chief David Kammerling Smith at dksmith@eiu.edu.  The resources may be found at https://h-france.net/online-teaching-resources/

H-France Forum

Discussion and debate, interpretation and re-interpretation, new angles of analysis and new theories to consider–all of these are vital to the scholarly enterprise.  H-France Forum encourages such activities by developing forums around recently published books.  A forum begins with four scholars offering their various responses to a specific book.  Afterwards, the book’s author responds to these reviews, taking the opportunity to further develop the books ideas and to defend the interpretive decisions made.  The result is a substantial investigation of new interpretations, methods, and theories.
