Geneviève Warland is Reader in History at UCLouvain and Research Assistant in the project Recognition and resentment: experiences and memories of the Great War in Belgium. Her PhD (2011) dealt with the public role of history and the conceptions of nation and Europe as interpreted by the contemporary philosophers J.-M. Ferry and J. Rüsen, on the one side, and by the historians P. J. Blok, Karl Lamprecht, Ernest Lavisse and Henri Pirenne on the other. She has worked as guest lecturer at the University of Frankfurt/Main and at the University of Paderborn. Her research interests focus on the history of historiography in Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries, especially on the role of historians as scientific mediators and on the expression of emotions in their writings.
