Co-organisation of Conferences
2011 I am in charge of the scientific organisation of the international conference Towards a Transnational History of Kemalism in the post-Ottoman Space, which will be held in Paris, France, on 8 and 9 December 2011. The workshop is promoted and supported by two departments of the EHESS (CETOBAC and IISMM) and ANR Transtur. I developed the design for the conference, co-selected the proposals and organised the logistics of the conference.

2008 I was in charge of co-organising the international conference Processi politici nel mediterraneo: dinamiche e prospettive [Political Processes in the Mediterranean Sea: Dynamics and Perspectives] held in Perugia (Italy) on 9 and 10 October 2008. The conference was organised by the University of Perugia (Italy) and the University Kadi Ayyad (Morocco).


Collective Projects
2011 In collaboration with the members of the Balkan section of the CETOBAC, I am participating in the production of a collective reference book on Balkan history in the 19th and 20th centuries. Under the coordination of Xavier Bougarel, I am in charge of the “Gender and the Body” section. In this capacity, I am responsible for contacting scholars who study gender and the body in Balkan societies, selecting them and coordinating with them in order to write this section of the collective book, which will be published in 2013.
