Prix AISA “Jean-François Bergier” for researches on History of Alps (2024)


The Prix Bergier is promoted and awarded by the International Association for Alpine History (IAAH), in memory of Jean-François Bergier, the scholar who promoted and co-founded the Association. The Prix Bergier is awarded every two years and aims to promote research by young scholars on the history of the Alps - and European mountain areas in general.


The Prix Bergier is awarded to doctoral theses, having as their central object the Alpine and pre-alpine area or other European mountain realities. Theses must relate to Medieval, Modern or Contemporary History, in one of its fields of study (social, economic, cultural, demographic, environmental, technical, etc.), or to neighbouring disciplines, though limited to historical anthropology and geography and medieval and modern archaeology.
