Calenda, the humanities and social sciences calendar

Calenda is an Open Access online announcement service in the humanities and social sciences. It informs students, lecturers and researchers alike of the current state of research. It is enriched by users' suggestions.

A calendar enriched by the academic commnunity

Since 2000, Calenda has provided an overview of the humanities and social sciences in France and abroad. Following the model of appropriation, the scientific community itself enriches the platform by submitting announcements via an online form. It is then up to the editorial team to decide of the the scientific relevance of the announcement. All announcements are permanently archived and remain accessible at the same address.

Calenda primarily publishes detailed announcements for colloquiums, seminars, lecture series and study days as well as job and scholarship offers, calls for tender and calls for academic events or journal papers. However, Calenda is not intended to announce publications, isolated lectures or events related to scientific popularization, commemoration and politics.
