Amelie Beaumont

The Alliance Program’s Doctoral Mobility Grant will allow me to conduct research on luxury hotels in New York City as part of my doctoral research on the work of luxury employees. My aim is to contrast how luxury services are produced for high-end customers in France and in the United-States. Moreover, this program will give me the opportunity to meet with the faculty members of the department of sociology at Columbia University to discuss my work and improve my understanding of the discipline in the US.

Lucile Roche

By mean of the Alliance Program, I will be able to compare the european corpus from the XVIIIth century I already gathered – Bibles, geological and cosmological illustrations, paintings – with its american counterpart. Moreover, to join the scientific project of Professor Higonnet about an american sculptress who once exposed in Paris will be a great collaborative opportunity.

Marie Gren

The Alliance grant gives me the amazing opportunity to get a deep understanding of the American model of legal adjudication which, while remaining very distinct, has echoes in the other three legal systems under my enquiry, that is France, Israel and Great-Britain.

Sylvestre Duroudier

As I conduct a doctoral research on discontinuities and social division of space in intermediate cities in the US, benefits of the Alliance program are very important. In particular, this is a great opportunity to deepen my knowledge of social and spatial processes in this context (especially by seminars), to stimulate exchanges and feedbacks with geography and sociology both on the approach and methods, also to more review the literature and to prepare the rest of my work in the intermediate cities.

Elise Aurières

As a Ph. D. student graduated with a double degree in philosophy and history of science, I am particularly eager to work under the supervision of Pr.

Romy Sanchez

My participation in the Alliance Program will be a great asset to my doctoral work on Cuban political exiles in the XIXth century as a transnational separatist network which role needs to be reevaluated within the Cuban and Spanish historical narratives, respectively still focused on national and imperial approaches.
