Stella Ghervas



Stella Ghervas is currently Visiting Scholar at Harvards Center for European Studies. She is also senior fellow at the Maison des Sciences de lHomme dAquitaine (Bordeaux), member of the IRICE Center (CNRS / Universities of Paris I and Paris IV) and of CIFE (Centre international de formation europenne, Brussels).

Her research interests include European history (18th-21st century), history of ideas, history of international relations, as well as history of Russia and South-Eastern Europe. Her major book, Rinventer la tradition. Alexandre Stourdza et lEurope de la Sainte-Alliance, explores the intellectual climate and the political conceptions prevailing in Europe at the time of the Congress of Vienna (Guizot Prize of the Acadmie Franaise in 2009, Xenopol Prize of the Romanian Academy in 2010). She taught at the University of Chicago, Institut dEtudes Avances in Paris, Sciences Po Bordeaux, as well as the Universities of Geneva, St. Petersburg, and Bucharest.

She is currently completing a book entitled Conquering Peace: From the Enlightenment to the European Union. Its goal is to examine how the reflection on war and peace induced the awareness of Europe, as a continent and as civilization, and how it crystallized around a legal and political definition. In parallel, she is working on a project aiming to pave the way for a transnational history of the Black Sea Region. It raises the issue of how to define Europe and how it blends into Asia.
