The pasts in the present collection

Stemming from the scientific program of the eponymous cluster of excellence (ANR-11-LABX-0026-01), “The pasts in the present” is a collection within the University Presses of Paris Nanterre. It proposes monographs and edited collections that convey the research conducted since 2012 on the representations of the past in every period and on the presence of the past in contemporary societies in the digital age.

The collection is composed of two series.
