  • Paris 8: a university open onto the world, a place for teaching, for research,
    knowledge, creation and culture, where reflection and interaction with our
    world are encouraged


    Paris 8 Vincennes - Saint-Denis,
    founded in 1968, is the heir to the experimental centre of Vincennes
    born in the intellectual and pedagogical turmoils which followed in the wake of
    May 68. Since then, the university has been characterised by a desire to
    promote democratic access to knowledge and education, and has oriented research
    so as to try and answer the challenges of our modern world.



    The reputation
    and influence of Université Paris 8 is also grounded on the international fame
    of a number of scholars who have held teaching positions in our institution, among
    others : Hélène Cixous, François Châtelet, Jean-François Lyotard, Michel
    Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Lacan, Madeleine Rebérioux, Robert Castel,
    Denis Guedj, and Daniel Bensaïd.



    Based in Saint-Denis since 1980, Université Paris 8 is
    attended by students from all around the world; we like to define ourselves today
    as a "world university".



    The quality
    of our faculty and students, the interdisciplinary nature of our classes and
    research, the fact that we are open onto the modern world, our numerous
    international partnerships in education and research, and our involvement with the
    local social, economic, cultural and professional environments have enabled Université
    Paris 8 to become a privileged institution for learning and for research in the
    fields of the humanities, human sciences, social sciences, and arts.
