Yannick RIPA

A professor of the political and social history of nineteenth century Europe at the University Paris 8, Yannick Ripa leads a research seminar on the history of gender and women, a subject on which she has published the first manual in France. She is a member of the UMR Sirice and an associate researcher with the Équipe d'accueil EA1571, which is part of the “Écrire une histoire nouvelle de l’Europe” LabEx. A regular contributor to Libération, where she writes reviews of works on the history of gender, she is especially interested in so-called peripheral subjects of women’s history (madness, violence, seduction), as well as the role of gender in the construction of political models and wars.
