Accepter, endurer, refuser (Les Belles Lettres, 2015) and published the chapter “Sciences et guerres” in the Histoire des sciences et des savoirs edited by Dominique Pestre (t. 3, Le Seuil, 2015) and the chapters “The Spanish Flu” and “Mobilising minds” in the Cambridge History of the First World War edited by Jay Winter (t. 3, Cambridge Universi- ty Press, 2014).
