Two Historians' Relationship with Sources in the Digital Age

Two Historians' Relationship with Sources in the Digital Age

This paper examines the annotation practices behind DHARPA (the Digital History Advanced Research Accelerator project) and its innovative data orchestration tool, kiara. By focusing on the importance of annotation across various stages of research, kiara aims to enhance transparency and traceability in humanities research. Kiara’s design draws on the wide range of research experiences of the project’s team members and its collaborators.

Entre les lignes : flux, mobilités et réseaux de la main-d'œuvre étrangère dans le bassin transfrontalier de la Minette durant l'entre-deux-guerres

Entre les lignes : flux, mobilités et réseaux de la main-d'œuvre étrangère dans le bassin transfrontalier de la Minette durant l'entre-deux-guerres

By considering the flows, mobilities and networks of foreign labour in the Minette cross-border basin during the inter-war period, we wanted to make a contribution to migration studies by tackling, in a transnational approach, a subject that requires several heuristic approaches and that is part of a relatively short period of time, marked by a turning point in national policies for controlling mobility, and characterised by a certain stability of state borders but also by economic and geopolitical tensions.

Between Online and Offline: Doing Archival Research in the Digital Age

Between Online and Offline: Doing Archival Research in the Digital Age

This article seeks to historicise the use of new technologies in historical research and reflect on the differences between working with online and traditional archives from a historian’s perspective. In doing so, it will discuss the various factors that must be considered, what political dimensions of archival and curatorial work exist and how they change in a digital context.

Le temps des plateformes : enjeux, différences et complémentarité de l’archivage des médias sociaux numériques à la Bibliothèque nationale de France et à l’Institut national de l’audiovisuel

Le temps des plateformes : enjeux, différences et complémentarité de l’archivage des médias sociaux numériques à la Bibliothèque nationale de France et à l’Institut national de l’audiovisuel

Inégalement préservés, les RSN entrent dans les enjeux d’archivage du web de manière plus ou moins précoce. La Bibliothèque nationale de France [BnF] a archivé Dailymotion entre 2007 et 2013, Twitter depuis 2012 et YouTube à partir de 2017. L’Institut national de l’audiovisuel [Ina] archive YouTube et Vimeo depuis 2009-2010 et Twitter depuis 2014. Si toutes les plateformes ne bénéficient pas encore d’une activité de captures régulières, de nouveaux projets de collecte améliorent la couverture. Ainsi la BnF gère des collectes Instagram depuis 2020 et TikTok depuis 2022.

Hans THUNA (1895-?), Else HERZOG (1891-1944), Erich THUNA (1924-2012), Erika THUNA (1924-2013)

Hans THUNA (1895-?), Else HERZOG (1891-1944), Erich THUNA (1924-2012), Erika THUNA (1924-2013)

Originally from Vienna, Austria, the Thuna family escaped to Luxembourg following the Anschluss of Austria to the German Reich in 1938. During their two-year stay in Luxembourg, they were supported by the Jewish ESRA Committee and resided in the Hotel Select. Despite efforts to obtain entry visas for countries in South America, they remained in Luxembourg until the invasion of German troops in May 1940, from where they embarked on a disrupted transport to Lisbon in November 1940, which eventually took them to France. In 1942, Hans Thuna was deported to Auschwitz via Drancy.
