French on OpenEdition Journals


The Revue d’Histoire du XIXe Siècle (RH19) is a semi-annual journal with a Reading Committee. The journal deals with all fields of nineteenth-century history on a global scale. Founded in 1904 by the Société d’histoire de la Révolution de 1848, it became a reference journal for nineteenth-century studies in France, Europe, and outside Europe.

Its unique identity can be attributed, of course, to its chronological place in history, at a time when our contemporaries are both moving away from and drawing closer to the nineteenth century. Reflecting upon the identity of this unique century and its present-day uses is a constituent part of this journal.

However, the Revue d’Histoire du XIXe Siècle is also distinguished by an active dialogue with foreign historiographies. Thus, several issues have been dedicated to British, Italian, and German historiographies, and this perspective will continue to be encouraged in the future. The International Scientific Committee plays an active role in this dialogue and enables original works to be published that have been little known thus far in France.

The identity of RH19 also owes much to disciplinary and generational exchanges. Valuing the scholarship required for any historical survey, the journal encourages dialogue between related disciplines, and works that make use of such exchanges about well-defined topics and sources. The range of possible exchanges is vast, moving from anthropology to law, from political science to sociology, or from literature to art history. The journal also pursues an active policy of publishing original works by young researchers.

RH19 also publishes thematic issues consisting of four separate sections: “Varia,” “Reviews,” “Current Issues and Debates,” and an alternating section entitled “Documents.” The latter two sections are intended both to highlight the expertise and inventiveness of unique sources and encourage critical thinking about new ways of writing history.
