Les publications du CHP

The Post Office, guardian of a French-style public service, has become, under the influence of Europe, an universal service, and by its history and its roots in its environment, presents an opportunity to reflect on a manner in which traditional and contemporary societies have resolved the issues of communication, exchanges and control of territories.
Thanks to The Comité pour l’histoire de La Poste (CHP), researchers in the humanities and social sciences have been allowed to reflect on its past and to shed light on the changes in the societies linked within its network. Thus, now active for nearly two decades, the CHP has encouraged and promoted research on the Postal Service, its “tools/instruments” of exchanges, its diplomatic agents, its politics, economy, culture and even its land settlements, without forgetting legislative and legal aspects.
This series brings together work –doctorates, acts of symposia, biographies and testimonials- in French and in English, that specifically deal with the Post Office and, more broadly, of the problem of commerce, communications and the control of territories. It is a platform for critical analyses of a world in perpetual motion. All the publications in this collection are subject to double peer review.
