Contemporary history of Europe

La coévolution de l’informatique et de son histoire 

This article aims to show how computing and the writing of its history have jointly evolved from an internalist approach and a fascination for the machine and the hardware to a broader interest for the « computer in society » and then digital cultures. This historiographical panorama questions the historical glance on computing during the last four decades but also the way in which historians have progressively taken into account issues that were already underway in the study of ICTs.
