Background and activities
A native of France, Carine Germond joined the Department of Historical Studies in 2016.She teaches in the BA European Studies and Foreign Languages and MA European Studies and supervises undergraduate and postgraduate theses on any topics related to European integration history and politics. Since January 2017, she is Programme Leader of the BA and MA European Studies programmes and chairs the European Studies Programme Council. In addition, she co-leads and is a member of the European Studies Research Cluster.
Her main research and teaching interests are in the field of Modern/Contemporary History and European Studies. Her core research areas are comparative, transnational and international history of 20th century Europe and European integration History after 1945. Her current research examines in particular the role played by non-state actors in European agricultural policy and policy-making. In "Farmers in Brussels. Farm Interest Groups and the CAP " she enquires into the role and influence of organized farm interests to explore and explain the striking lack of reform of the Common Agricultural Policy prior to 1992. In a new project, she scrutinizes the historical involvement of experts in debating agricultural policy for Europe in key international organizations (IOs) and their contribution to diffusing and transfering policy ideas within and across IOs in the long 20th century. She has also published extensively on Franco-German relations in post-war Europe.
She was awarded her M.Phil. and PhD degrees in Contemporary History from the University of Strasbourg. She also holds an MA in German Studies from the University François Rabelais in Tours, France.
Before moving to Norway and joining NTNU, she worked as a (tenured) Assistant Professor in Contemporary European and International History at Maastricht University in the Netherlands where she taught in the European Studies programme at both BA and MA levels. She was also the first recipient of the (visiting) Clifford Hackett Lectureship in the History of European Integration at Yale University (USA) and taught History and Political Science majors between 2005 and 2007.
She has received distinguished fellowships from a variety of institutions across Europe. She was a Research Fellow at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS) in Wassenaar, a (senior) Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Postsmouth, a Jean Monnet post-doctoral Fellow at the European University in Florence, and a Research Fellow at the German Historical Institute in Paris. She also held a three-year doctoral fellowship from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) at the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany.
She has been an expert consultant for various EU institutions and regularly contributes to the media on EU issues and politics.
