Hypothèses publishes works produced as part of the Ph.D studies program in history at the University of Paris I.
The Ph.D. studies program is open to training all French and foreign historians. This is an epistemological process and provides a perspective that prohibits researchers from working on a strictly individual basis. The purpose of the Ph.D studies program is to enable collective oversight within the context of seminars related to the Diploma of Advanced Studies degrees (DEAs) and CNRS laboratories with which they are associated.
Several areas of history-related research and teaching are studied exclusively or nearly exclusively at the University of Paris I, such as:
History of the Ancient Near East
History of Ancient and Modern Africa
History of the Orient of the Middle-Ages
History of North and South America
History of the Slavs
History of the French Revolution
History of Science and Technology, etc.
