Fernand Braudel maintained friendly contacts with many American researchers. An institute bearing his name was founded in New York by Immanuel Wallerstein in 1976: the Fernand Braudel Center for the Study of Economies, Historical Systems and Civilizations. It is devoted to the study of large-scale social change over long historical periods of time.
