Elise Aurières

CIRHUS Rockefeller Fellow


After graduating in philosophy (Paris 1) and in the history of science (EHESS), Elise Aurières started her Ph.D at the Université Pantheon-Sorbonne University under the supervision of Bernadette Bensaude-Vincent and Dominique Pestre. Her research focuses on the role of Alexandre Koyré in the institutionalization of the history of science in the United States. The goal is to understand how Koyré renewed the intellectual landscape that he discovered in the US in the early 1940s, and how a number of American historians and philosophers appropriated his ideas in their efforts to professionalize the history of science in the United States.

Elise Aurières will be visiting CIRHUS from February to December 2014
