The journal Monde(s). Histoire, Espaces, Relations (World(s): History, Spaces, Relations) was created to fill a gap in publishing, as well as to provide a forum for the expression and publication of new trends in international history, such as transnational history, connected history, and global history, which are broadly represented abroad but remain underdeveloped in France.

While a number of history and social science journals including Revue d’Histoire moderne et contemporaine (Journal of Early Modern and Modern History), Vingtième siècle (Twentieth Century), Genèses (Geneses), and Relations internationales (International Relations) have in recent years devoted articles and issues—often of a theoretical or historiographical nature—to these innovative approaches to research, there are no publications that specifically focus on these issues.

The Monde(s) project grew out of encounters between historians in international relations revolving around Robert Frank and the SIRICE joint research unit (Sorbonne-Identités, Relations internationales et civilisations de l’Europe), including researchers from Paris I, Sorbonne University, and the CNRS, and Africanists from the Centre d’études des mondes africains (CEMAf, Center for the Study of African Worlds, http://www.cemaf.cnrs.fr) at Paris I, revolving around Pierre Boilley. These exchanges were driven by the conviction that the history of transnational phenomena had to be rethought, notably by expanding it with reflections from specialists of all geographic areas, thereby toppling Eurocentric chronologies and perspectives, or ones prisoner to “methodological nationalism” (overly centered on a single continent).

This initiative enjoys a substantial institutional basis: SIRICE and CEMAf alone mobilize 553 researchers (215 members and 338 doctoral students), essentially from Paris I, Paris IV, and the CNRS, along with researchers associated with French and foreign universities and research centers, who collectively ensure a truly international diffusion for the journal.

The journal Monde(s). Histoire, Espaces, Relations is the property of the association (law of 1901): Association of the journal Monde(s). Histoire, Espaces, Relations.
The journal has been published in paper and online formats (2 issues per year) by the Presses Universitaires de Rennes since 2015.
