During the 1970s and 1980s, Michel de Certeau proposed the introduction of psychoanalytic theories into the work of the historian. Several books and articles have since acknowledged the originality and fruitfulness of his work. Following the “Certeau” period, this volume aims to look at the presence of psychoanalysis in historical studies today. Considering as a starting point that psychoanalysis is today no longer the partner discipline with which the social sciences has for a long time interacted, it seemed necessary to investigate this new distance, and to ask a generation of researchers how they perceive this relationship today. At a time when the archives of psychoanalysis are being established, when the figure of the first-person historian dominates, and while works on the archives continue—insignificant though this may seem—to assimilate a largely analytical vocabulary, it seemed useful to question this relationship again in order to better understand how history is written today. With very different writing methods, the nine contributors to this special report have thus accepted the task of engaging in a singular exercise. Archaeologists, archivists, and contemporary historians have taken this question of psychoanalysis seriously, looking clearly and objectively at the way it works in their research: it is sometimes an object, sometimes a tool, but sometimes also appears as the central issue in the historian’s quest.
