“Small is impactful”. Memes and Politics

“Small is impactful”. Memes and Politics

From the Hampster Dance and the Dancing Baby in the second half of the 1990s to the hijacking meme of Bernie and his mittens at the US presidential inauguration or the images of the Evergreen blocked in the Suez Canal, memes have become in the last twenty years an important part of our digital cultures (Shifman, 2014), whose often absurd, playful, corrosive and viral character cannot hide also multiple political dimensions.

Transcription, Indexing and Analysis in Oral History

While TV-interviews are recorded for an already written documentary film script, interviews for the Ukrainian oral history archive of war testimonies are recorded without any expectations. When creating our archive, we do not know what research question of linguists, philosophers or historians will be later. We know that the archive is not going public, that´s the deal.

“Challenge accepted”. The many sources to catch the history of virality and memes

Gifs and memes (Kaplan and Nova, 2016), “buzz” on the Web and social networks are inherent to digital cultures since the very first steps of the Web (i.e., Godwin’s Law, Dancing babies, Hamster Dance, cf. McGrath, 2019).

Retrieve me if you can... Women and COVID through Web archives

The COVID crisis has been a shared worldwide and collective experience from March 2020 and lot of voices have echoed each other, may it be related to grief, lockdown, masks and vaccines, homeschooling, etc. However, this unprecedented crisis has also deepened asymmetries and failures within societies, in terms of occupational fields, economic inequalities, health and sanitary access, and we could extend the inventory of these hidden and more visible gaps that were reinforced during the crisis.

The Occupational Structure of England and Wales: the 1939 National Register

The Occupational Structure of England and Wales: the 1939 National Register

A gap in the census surveys for England and Wales between 1921 and 1951 hinders the analysis of their labour structure for the interwar years. The present article uses a dataset containing occupational titles from the National Register – a census-like enumeration of 1939, recently digitised by the genealogy service ‘Find My Past’ – which was previously assigned numerical codes (the pst system).
