Alexandre DUPONT

A graduate of the École normale supérieure and former member of the Casa de Velázquez, in 2015 Alexandre Dupont defended his thesis in Modern History, entitled “Une Internationale blanche. Les légitimistes français au secours des carlistes, 1868-1883,” directed by Philippe Boutry (Université Panthéon-Sorbonne) and Pedro Rújula (Universidad de Zaragoza). An Associate Professor at l’Université de Strasbourg, his research now focuses on counter-revolutionary transnational circulations, particularly of weapons and combatants, as well as on a study of borders during the nineteenth century based on the example of the French-Spanish border, which is seen as a specific scale of politics from the perspective of microhistory, history from below, and connected history. He is the author of a number of overviews, contributions, and articles, including one on the role of women during the Second Carlist War (Genre et histoire).
