Academic programs

The Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences doctoral school (ED AHSS) provides scientific training courses for doctoral students. Other training courses may be offered by the laboratory or by external partners.

The Doctoral Studies Office manages course registrations.


International relations

The LT2D is part of the scientific scene at both national and international level. The laboratory regularly sets up projects with French and foreign collaborators and organises symposiums of various kinds, while its members participate in the work of multiple national and international scientific networks in their respective disciplines.

University collaborations

The LT2D endeavours to promote its existing resources nationally and internationally, particularly with the support of the new federative structure “Institute of Digital Humanities”, but also by establishing partnerships with renowned players such as the ATILF or the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences. Lastly, it should be noted that the LT2D continues to strengthen its long-standing partnerships with structures that promote the French language (Institut de Linguistique Française, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Alliance française, etc.).

Additional information

Doctoral students and post-docs hosted by the LT2D are an integral part of the laboratory and enjoy access to the premises, computer equipment and a research library to carry out their work. In addition to their own research, they also actively participate in the life of the laboratory by attending the various events that are organised.
