Dominique Kalifa is a French historian, professor at the University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, where he is director of the Centre of 19th Century History[1][2] and member of the Institut Universitaire de France. A student of Michelle Perrot, he specialises in the history of crime, transgression, social control, and mass culture in 19th and early 20th France and Europe. He also teaches at the Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris (Sciences Po) from 2008 and reviews for the French newspaper Libération. His last book was devoted to the underworld and its role in the Western imagination. He is currently working on a new project about the concept of "Belle Epoque" and the ways 20th century France has represented the turn of the century.
