Vingtième Siècle. Revue d'histoire


The history journal 20 & 21. Revue d'histoire, formerly Vingtième Siècle. Revue d’histoire, as its name suggests, focuses on contemporary history dating from the Dreyfus Affair to the present day, and examines the relationship between past and present. Based on a network of primarily academic authors, the journal publishes the results of French and international research for researchers, teachers, students and the informed general public. Varied articles and sections on news from the discipline (presentation of archive collections, seminar proceedings, reviews of recent books) offer readers, without exception, a rigorous historical approach to a range of different subjects. Special editions and themed sections are regular features and enable deeper exploration of certain topics.
