TEMOS - Temps, Mondes, Sociétés - CNRS FRE 2015

Time, World, Societies Laboratory (TEMOS) - CNRS FRE 2015

Universities of Angers, Le Mans and South Brittany

Research in history helps us to better understand the present in the light of the past, by dealing with sources that are often unpublished, whether archaeological, manuscripts or oral.

The research topics of the TEMOS research team cover all periods, from antiquity to the present day, and echo several contemporary challenges.

The research at TEMOS focuses on childhood and gender, coexistence and conflicts in social, political, and religious context, and on the construction of knowledge, in a continuous dialogue with contemporary issues.


 120 people including
55 researchers and teachers-researchers | 13 at Le Mans
60 doctoral students | 10 at Le Mans
6 administrative and technical staff | 2 at Le Mans


The TEMOS laboratory collaborates with numerous universities both in France and abroad (Sheffield, Buenos Aires, Agadir, etc.) and several research units in the fields of social sciences, literature and languages.
The expertise of the team is made available to local authorities (the Pays de la Loire Region, the Sarthe Department), to local associations and to cultural establishments.


A strong link between research and teaching curricula from the “Licence” degree to the PhD
(training in and through research).
A strong territorial involvement, particularly with actors in the cultural heritage sector.
