Deborah Dubald, PhD in History


Docteure en Histoire et Civilisation de l'Institut Universitaire Européen à Florence (2019), ma thèse s'intitule Capital Nature: a History of French Municipal Museums of Natural History, 1795-1870, http://hdl.handle.net/1814/65304.
Ma thèse a remporté le James Kaye Memorial Prize en 2020.

J'ai été ATER en Histoire contemporaire et Humanités Numériques auprès de la Faculté des Humanités de l'Université de Lille de 2018 à 2020.
À partir de septembre 2020, je suis ATER en Histoire des Sciences auprès de la Faculté de Médecine de l'Université de Strasbourg.

Mes recherches portent sur les pratiques et les cultures de l'histoire naturelle au XIXe siècle, sur les collections et les musées d'histoire naturelle, les pratiques scientifiques, la production des espaces savants et plus généralement, sur l'histoire des relations entre nature et sociétés. Actuellement, je travaille  sur les collections scientifiques comme source de l'historie environnementale ainsi que sur la publication de ma thèse.

Formée initialement en Histoire à l'Université de Strasbourg et titulaire du CAPES d'Histoire-Géographie, j'ai bénéficié d'une formation spécifique pour l'enseignement en DNL (discipline non liguistique) en anglais. Ainsi, j'ai enseigné de 2009 à 2014 en Section Britannique du Lycée International de Strasbourg.

I hold a PhD in History and Civilisation from the European University Institute, Florence (2019) with my thesis Capital Nature: a History of French Municipal Museums of Natural History, 1795-1870, http://hdl.handle.net/1814/65304.

My doctoral thesis was awarded the 2020 James Kaye Memorial Prize for the Best Thesis in History and Visuality.

From 2018-2020, I have been a Teaching Fellow (ATER) in Modern History in the Faculty of Humanities Department at the University of Lille. Since September 2020, I teach history of science (ATER) in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Strasbourg.

My research deals with practices and cultures of natural history in the nineteenth century, with a focus on museums and collections of natural history; scientific practices; the production of scientific space. I am generally interested in the history of the relation between nature and the human societies. My current research interest is about the use of scientific and natural history collections in environmental history. I am also working at the publication of my thesis.

I was trained at the University of Strasbourg and I am a qualified secondary-education teacher in History & Geography and I used to teach at the Lycée International in Strasbourg.
