Yves Denéchère is a Professor of Modern History at the University of Angers, and Assistant Director of l’UMR CNRS CERHIO. His research covers social history, international relations, childhood, women, and gender during the long twentieth century. He has notably co-edited with Jean-Marc Delaunay: Femmes et relations internationales au xxe siècle (Paris: Presses de la Sorbonne Nouvelle, 2006), which had a strong impact on the dialogue between two historical fields that rarely recognized or were rarely familiar with one another, the fields of women and gender on the one hand, and diplomatic and international relations on the other. He has notably published Ces françaises qui ont fait l’Europe (Paris: Audibert, 2007), which analyzes the position and role of French female politicians in European integration. He has also edited a special feature entitled Gaullisme, femmes et réseaux (Histoire@Politique No. 17 (2012)). He currently directs the EnJeu[x] Enfance et jeunesse interdisciplinary research programme.
